Chiricahua leopard frog (Lithobates chiricahuensis), Threatened Species 

The once-plentiful Chiricahua leopard frog now occupies only a few “isolated pockets of aquatic habitat,” many of them in and near the Rosemont site, including Cienega Creek. The mine “would significantly reduce surface water flows into Davidson Canyon and Cienega Creek,” putting the threatened frog’s habitat at risk.
