ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the resurgence of the population of pacific chorus frogs in San Francisco, California. It says that conservationists kept secret the location of the frog sanctuary to avoid disruption from visitors and wildlife collectors. According to biologist Mark Frey, the occurrence of the frogs in the Presidio is caused by the ecological restoration efforts by converting a former military base at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge to a national park.
