Introduction

SAVE THE FROGS! GhanaColombia is home to over 750 amphibian species. Please donate to SAVE THE FROGS! to ensure we have the financial resources we need to educate hundreds of thousands of Colombians about frog conservation. Your support will help SAVE THE FROGS! Colombia protect all these species so they survive long into the future! These photos were taken by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger in April/May 2013 unless otherwise noted. You can use the pictures on this page for non-commercial purposes so long as you reference the images as courtesy of savethefrogs.com (with a hyperlink being appreciated!).

Atelopus laetissimus

Luis Rueda found these beautiful frogs in amplexus during a Save The Frogs Day event in April 2013 in the Santa Marta Mountains in Magdalena, northern Colombia. Over half of the 100 Atelopus species are thought to be extinct, most likely due to the chytrid fungus, which thrives in the high mountain streams these frogs tend to inhabit.

Dendrobates terriblis - Poison Dart Frog

This beautiful frog was captured by police in the Medellin airport. Smugglers were attempting to illegally export this frog to sell it on the black market for use as a pet far from its home in the forests of western Colombia. The frog now lives at Medellin's Parque Explora, where it educates visitors about the threats to its species. These frogs are threatened with extinction due to exploitation for the pet trade. The species has a very small geographic range and could easily go extinct if we don't actively work to prevent the illegal harvests. We encourage all frog lovers to boycott the trade of wild-caught frogs and be sure to read our pets webpage. With your financial support, SAVE THE FROGS! Colombia can educate the communities sorrounding this frog's habitat, to ensure they do not take part in the illegal harvests.
