Biologists confirm 28 rare frogs survived major wildfire last year at Santa Monica Mountains NRA

It appears that neither wildfires nor mudslides can wipe out populations of California red-legged frogs in the Santa Monica Mountains of California.

A recent survey by National Park Service biologists at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area discovered 28 adult California red-legged frogs (Rana draytonii) in four translocation sites that were set up by Park Service biologists in 2014 in an effort to re-introduce the threatened species back into the Santa Monica Mountains.
