Amphibian Exhibit in Lincoln through November 30

Amphibians: Vibrant and Vanishing will be at the University of Nebraska State Museum at Morrill Hall until November 30, 2011.

The exhibit features over 60 striking photographs of amphibians that stretch our notions of beauty and shed light on the tragic decline of some of Earth’s most magnificent species.


An endangered Costa Rican variable harlequin toad (Atelopus varius) at the El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center (EVACC). This species is highly endangered and is found very little in the wild. The female is yellow and much larger than the male.


Two Panamanian golden frogs (Atelopus zeteki) at the El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center (EVACC). The female is the larger frog.


A Panamanian color morph of (Dendrobates auratus) at the El Valle Amphibian Conservation Center (EVACC).


Amphibians showcases the incredible diversity of these species, which include frogs, toads, newts, salamanders and more. Large-scale images give visitors a close-up look at these endearing and expressive creatures–from the strange to the comical, the camouflaged to the canary yellow.

Sadly, many amphibians are on the brink of extinction. The exhibit also highlights the widespread losses these species are experiencing due to environmental factors, such as pollution, habitat loss, climate change, and disease.
