Invasive Species — Red-legged Frog (Rana aurora)
Pathways

Red-legged frogs are not known to travel much farther than 2.5 km on their own. However, they can be easily moved and introduced by people. In Alaska, an established population of red-legged frogs near Hoonah resulted from a release of several dozen young frogs by a local teacher.
