North Carolina designated the Pine Barrens treefrog (Hyla andersonii) as the official state frog of North Carolina in 2013. The rare Pine Barrens treefrog can be found in the Sandhills and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina. Raleigh teenager Rachel Hopkins led the effort to designate the marbled sSalamander and the Pine Barrens treefrog as state symbols in order to raise awareness of the importance of amphibian conservation.
