Coqui Frog

Coqui Frog

Help prevent harmful coqui frogs from invading Oahu. Participate in the Oahu Invasive Species Committee’s “Go Out and Listen Night” on September 12, 2012 to listen for coqui frogs at night in your neighborhood and report what you hear using your smartphone and the free “Honolulu 311” smartphone app. For event details, visit: coqui311.blogspot.com

They croak at about the same noise level as a chain saw.  If you think a jet taking off is bad, just wait till a bunch of these guys get going.  Help the invasive species folks keep these guys out of Oahu.  Listen and report.

Our Quarantine Branch was decimated by Gov Lingle and Governor Abercrombie hasn’t done much to restore our Quarantine Branch’s capability.  Let your legislators know you support a strong invasive species quarantine program.
