The Houston Zoo has released over 20,000 Houston toads into the wild since we began our reintroduction program in 2007. We are determined to protect the Houston Toad from extinction!
Four Houston toad egg strands (~12,000+ eggs) that were produced here at the Houston Zoo were released by Texas State this week.
Three of the strands are going to a private landowner and one strand will be headed to the state park. Each egg strand is being placed into a special wire cage to protect the eggs from predation.
