Panamanian Golden Frog

Who: Project Golden Frog
What: Panamanian Golden Frog (Atelopus zeteki) (Critically Endangered)
Where: Panama, Central America
Why: Project Golden Frog/Proyecto Rana Dorada exists to preserve the Panamanian Golden Frog through scientific field studies, education, financial support, and captive management; and to use the attractive frog as a model flagship species for amphibian decline issues in Panama and worldwide. The Panamanian golden frog, Atelopus zeteki, is an important cultural symbol of Panama since pre-Colombian times, much like the bald eagle is to Americans. Our continuing support for captive assurance populations in Panama, United States, and Canada is critical to one day reintroduce these culturally-important, unique amphibians. The EVACC Foundation is working hard to maintain, breed, and further the understanding of these assurance colonies of frogs and are working toward repatriating their offspring back into their native habitat.
