LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — Mountain yellow-legged frogs, which are threatened with extinction, are being released back into our native mountains.

Wildlife authorities saved the species after the 2020 Bobcat Fire threatened the creeks where they live.

In the past two years, 125 frogs have been raised at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.

More than 100 tadpoles hatched at the Los Angeles Zoo last year.

Experts have learned from previous publications that the best time to release them is when they have transformed from tadpoles into frogs.

These frogs are native to the San Gabriel, San Bernardino, and San Jacinto Mountains.
