Fate of San Francisco Garter Snake Depends on Frog

The San Mateo County Times looks at conservation efforts to help two threatened species in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Mori Point site: the Red-legged Frog and the San Francisco Garter Snake. “The relationship between the two species is fragile. When the population of the frog declines, so does the population of the snake.” Conservation efforts to ensure a healthy frog population therefore help preserve the snake population.
