Species of endangered frog now breeding in areas of Santa Monica Mountains NRA torched by 2018 fire

California red-legged frogs might be a threatened species, but those in the Santa Monica Mountains of California are proving to be a resilient species, as well. While the November 2018 Woolsey Fire swept across most of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area there, two separate populations of the frogs have been found breeding in the area burned by the fire.

According to park biologists, these sites have not had wild breeding red-legged frogs for perhaps 50 years.
