The Golden Toad - Lost But Not Forgotten

All amphibian biologists and frog-lovers alike remember and appreciate the beautiful golden toad of Costa Rica. It is important to take a moment to celebrate this amazing amphibian and reflect on the many other amphibian species that have gone extinct in recent decades. Their loss reminds us to keep working harder and smarter in order to stop the amphibian extinction crisis. Although the golden toad is gone forever, we can work together to save other endangered amphibians.

Please spread the word about the amphibian extinction crisis, donate today to contribute to our conservation efforts and join a future SAVE THE FROGS! Costa Rica Ecotour to visit the majestic forest where the golden toad once thrived. Thank you for your support!

Then the parent frog transports the tadpoles to small pockets of water in bromeliads or other vegetation, often high in the trees. That is like if you carried a human baby to the top of the Empire State Building!

Testimonials

"I am a former Herpetology Keeper's Assistant, and an avid nature and wildlife photography buff. I love frogs because…well, heck, how can one NOT love frogs? They have cute expressive faces, they sing into the night, and they eat lots of insects, thus helping to control the population of pests. They are also (and most unfortunately) a visual representation of the damage we are doing to the natural environment, and to the planet as a whole. They are our modern day canary in a coal mine. We would do well to heed their warning…"
