Update Regarding the Dart Frog Ban in Alberta

I am elated to bring you the following update regarding the Dart Frog Ban in Alberta. Below is an email that was issued on August 21 2015 by Dave Stepnisky, the Director of Fish and Wildlife Habitat Policy. In it he states that the there will be an amendment to the Wildlife Regulation in Alberta coming  (no timetable is give though) Dave does go on to say that  only the Genus Phyllobates will a ‘Controlled Animal’ which is the way it was prior to the last change to the legislation. This is very positive news, and we couldn’t be happier.

Happy Frogging

Subject: Request for progress update on Wildlife Regulation as it relates to the possession of Poison Arrow Frogs in Alberta

Dear …,

This email is to follow-up on your phone call to my office and our recent discussions regarding the review of and amendments to the Wildlife Regulation, as it relates to the possession of Poison Arrow Frogs in Alberta.  Travis Ripley (the Executive Director of Fish and Wildlife Policy) is currently out of the office and on Annual Leave until August 30th, but he mentioned that you may be in contact with us during his absence.  While I can confirm that we are working on a proposed amendment to the Wildlife Regulation which would identify only the Genus Phyllobates as a ‘Controlled Animal’, I, unfortunately, cannot provide you with a timetable for the completion of this work.

Further, while the proposed amendment to the Wildlife Regulation would see only the Genus Phyllobates listed as a Controlled Animal for the purposes of Alberta’s legislation, it is nevertheless important to note that the Family Dendrobatidae remains listed under both the “Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species” (CITES) and the Federal Government’s “Wild Animal and Plant Protection and Regulation of International Trade Act” (WAPRITA).  Any changes which are made to Alberta’s Wildlife Regulation will not relieve you of your requirements to comply with applicable federal legislation.

Sincerely,

Dave Stepnisky

Today we met with officials from Alberta Fish and Wildlife as wells as the Alberta ESRD. I am pleased to say that the discussions went very well. We are told that they are making final revisions to the regulations, and the Family Dendrobatidae and Family Aromobatidae will not be controlled species in Alberta except the Phyllobates genus. Yes Dart frogs are legal in Alberta once again. (except Phyllobates)  Moreover we have been given approval to sell our frogs. Please Check back often as We will be updating the site over the next while

Thank you to everyone that contributed to our efforts. Without your support this may not have been as successful.  I strongly encourage people to join their local Reptile and Amphibian society and get involved with you fish and wildlife branches or controlling government bodies. Find out when they are doing reviews in your area, and provide input to the changes that may be already happening.

Pro Tip to prevent fruit flies from escaping

Here is a “Pro Tip” for anyone feeding fruit flies.

Are you tired of your fruit flies escaping from you vivarium? Have you done all the fly proofing you can do and fruit flies still get out? Is your partner or spouse getting frustrated with you because fruit flies crawling on the floor? Try this simple trick next time you are feeding fruit flies to your Dart Frogs. This trick works especially well D. Melanogaster fruit flies.

Take a small slice of apple and place it in a back corner of you vivarium. The fruit flies will be attracted to the apple and want to stay in one place for a while longer. This will give your Dart Frogs a chance to get most of the flies before they have time to escape. This also makes it handy to see if you need to add more flies or if there are plenty hanging out at the “Fly Buffet”

 

Check back often to learn more Pro Tips for Dart Frog keepers

 

Happy Frogging!
