Frogs on edge of extinction

Vancouver Aquarium staff will release more than 1,600 tadpoles into the wild next week in an effort to save B.C.'s most endangered amphibian.

The northern leopard frog tadpoles were raised at the aquarium as part of its Ocean Wise initiative.

It's the seventh year for the conservation program, but "sadly, they're not out of the danger zone yet," aquarium biologist Kris Rossing told CTV News.

The tadpoles will be released Monday in Cranbrook.
