MEET THE (SPECIAL CONCERNS) FOWLER'S TOAD AND TREE FROG THAT HAVE MADE THEIR HOME IN CALVERTON
 

Fowler’s Toad

Scientific Name: Bufo fowleri
Size: 2 – 3.7” (adult length)
Status: Species of Special Concern and Species of Greatest Conservation Need; This species is overall less abundant than the American Toad, but can be abundant in areas with suitable habitat.

Habitat:
Can be found in open woodland, sandy prairie, meadows, and beaches. May also occur in suburban or agricultural areas. Prefer sandy soils, especially along shorelines and rivers.

 

CURRENT THREATS, STATUS, AND CONSERVATION

The greatest threat to the Fowler’s toad is habitat destruction. Disruption of breeding sites is very detrimental to their existence. Human interactions such as use of off-road vehicles may easily damage the habitat of this species. Another threat to this species is chemical pollution. The pesticides and fertilizers used for lawns and agricultural land may cause drastic declines in population in some areas.

Due to population declines and habitat loss, the Fowler’s toad was listed as a species of special concern in New Jersey. In 2016, the New Jersey Endangered and Nongame Advisory Committee recommended changing this species' status from Special Concern to stable within the state, but no formal rule proposal has been filed to date.
