WCN’s Citizen Science Program is one of the long term programs started in 2013 to engage citizens and Graduate and Undergraduate students in conservation. WCN has been successfully conducting Croaking Monsoon since 2013, a Citizen Science Survey to Explore Ponds and Frogs of Kathmandu Valley in collaboration with its partners CARON, ENPROSC and Goldengate International College. This year in 2020, the program is expanded to cover the whole nation to develop a citizen science based database of frogs. The main objectives of the program is to develop enthusiasm in the community towards the frog and build a nationwide network of citizen scientists especially students interested to contribute for herpetology and frogs in particular. Through this program, we will be able to communicate the interesting facts about the distribution of frogs and habitat used by frogs in Nepal.
