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!

Introducing the Strawberry Poison Dart Frog

costa rica oophaga 2

The strawberry poison dart frog, Oophaga pumilio, has an extraordinary reproductive strategy. Females lay their eggs in leaf-litter or on plants on the rainforest floor. When the tadpoles hatch, one of the parents will coax them to climb onto their back. 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 live with four other people in a co-op in Memphis called the Frog House. My roommates and I are currently planning our backyard frog pond project. It all started with someone suggesting we buy a pet frog, and after talk and research we found that the best way to have frogs at our house was to create a habitat for them outdoors. It is my hope that, even in a small way, we can help stabilize the frog populations of our area, which may help bring about a halt to the frightening rates of many species decline and extinction."
