The toads are located by the transponder inserted into the little backpack/fanny pack/cummerbund that doesn’t inhibit the toad’s movement or harm the animal. The tracker has to get within 10 to 15 meters to pick up the signal. Photo by Stephen Salpukas William & Mary

For nearly a century, it was the colonial capital of Virginia and later served as the Commonwealth’s capital in […]
