Amphibian Education in Valle del Cauca

STATUS: CURRENTLY SEEKING FUNDING

It is extremely important to conduct educational campaigns in the Valle del Cauca and especially in communities that are near critical amphibian habitat. With these campaigns, we will inform the local people of the importance of amphibians, their role in the ecosystem, the threats they face, and how local people can help. This proposal focuses on three species of poison dart frogs (Dendrobatidae) that are experiencing various threats:
Phyllobates bicolor (Near Threatened)
Oophaga lehmanni (Critically Endangered)
Andinobates viridis (Vulnerable)

We chose these species because they are brightly-colored and thus charismatic, they are being illegally trafficked, they have value to human medicine, and they are in localities that are easily accessed by SAVE THE FROGS! Cali educators. Three undergraduate biologists from the Universidad del Valle will visit three communities for three days each, to give two to four presentations to kids, adults and teachers.

Es de gran importancia realizar campañas de educación ambiental en el departamento Valle del Cauca y especialmente en zonas cercanas a las localidades de las especies más amenazadas. Con estas actividades se pretende informar a la comunidad sobre los anfibios, sobre la importancia de estas especies en los ecosistemas y en el país, problemáticas asociadas a los anfibios, los cuidados que se deben tener, entre otros temas relacionados con la conservación de este grupo animal. Esta propuesta de educación ambiental se enfoca en tres localidades de tres especies de la familia Dendrobatidae que se encuentran en algún grado de amenaza. Se proponen estas tres especies porque: son carismáticas, son muy usadas en tráfico ilegal, son importantes por su potencial farmacológico y las comunidades humanas cercanas se encuentran en territorios asequibles. Durante tres días de visita, en cada localidad se realizaran entre 2 y 4 charlas. Dirigidas a diferentes grupos: niños, adultos y profesores.
