Do you want to learn more about our very own native Texan the Houston Toad? Do you wish you knew how you could help save this endangered species? Well, worry no more! For our final project in conservation biology, my group and I decided to create an eco-friendly art piece of the Houston Toad along with an educational brochure with lots of interesting facts and ways to help. In the brochure we explain the inspiration behind the art piece, a little background knowledge on the Houston Toad and its native habitat, a deeper look into the captive rearing program at the Houston Zoo and ways in which everyone can help preserve this endangered species. I have also attached an interview we conducted with one of the full-time “Toad Keepers” at the Houston Zoo. If you have any questions about the information in the brochure or interview or about the Houston Toad in general feel free to write them in the comment section at the bottom of the page.
