A longnose harlequin frog (Atelopus longirostris) at Centro Jambatu in Quito, Ecuador. This animal is originally from Intag, Imbabura Province, Ecuador. Though listed as extinct on the IUCN red list, a few species were found in the wild in 2016 after more than two decades of zero sightings. At the time this photo was taken, in January 2019, there were only 4 known individuals, all at Centro Jambatu. This frog species is a keystone species in the fight against mining activities, specifically the Llurimagua mining project.

A critically endangered Jambato toad (Atelopus ignescens) at Centro Jambatu in Quito, Ecuador. This animal is originally from Angamarca in the Cotopaxi Province of Ecuador. This species used to be very common during the early 1980s but it was not seen for 28 years in the wild (between 1988 and 2016). However, one more wild population was found in 2016. A wild pair laid a clutch of eggs (about 600) in captivity in 2017, and nearly 200 juveniles are successfully growing and reaching adulthood at the time this photo was taken (in January 2019) at Centro Jambatu. This species could have been negatively affected by a global warming and also possible pathogens.
