Grandfather Frog Meets Red, the Redside Dace

In partnership with: Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Swim Drink Fish, Toronto Zoo, The W. Garfield Weston Foundation

Our favourite frog is busy catching flies for dinner when one of them gets swallowed by a mysterious leaping creature. It’s a Redside Dace, the amazing little leaping fish that’s native to Ontario. Red introduces himself to Grandfather Frog, and we learn that his species is under threat from human development. Captain Nemo appears, asking New Atlanteans to help protect the Redside Dace - an important “indicator” species - and to support efforts at keeping our waterways healthy and clean.
