  • The DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife is seeking volunteers for its Delaware Amphibian Monitoring Program.
    DAMP is seeking volunteers to conduct frog-calling surveys on 17 routes in all three counties, with the greatest need for volunteers in Sussex County. Volunteers should have a car and must be willing to conduct surveys along a roadside at night. Surveys are weather dependent, so volunteers need to be flexible on survey dates and times.
    Each survey takes two to three hours, not including drive time to the start point. Volunteers will conduct three nighttime surveys between March and July.
    Volunteers will be provided with a training CD and other materials upon selection of a survey route and will learn the calls of Delaware's 16 frog species, their habitat and where in the state they are most likely to be found.
