The boreal toad is one of Colorado's most endangered amphibians. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is working to restore the small toads through an aggressive reintroduction program. To date, Zimmerman Lake in Larimer County is the only location where the small toads have established a self-sustaining population. Each year, biologists collect toad eggs at Zimmerman Lake, transport them to hatcheries and then restock the boreal tadpoles in key areas across the state. On Aug. 11, 2020, biologists stocked tadpoles into Rocky Mountain National Park in the hope of establishing a new population. CPW is working in collaboration with the National Park Service and other state and federal agencies to re-establish boreal toads across the state. The hope is that some toads will develop a resistance to the chytrid fungus, which is responsible for decimating amphibians throughout North America. Video produced by Jerry Neal/CPW
