Brown color morph of the endangered Limosa harlequin frog (Atelopus limosus) at the Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project. This is a project designed to establish captive breeding populations of frogs at risk of extinction from the frog-killing Chryttrid fungus. This species is highly susceptible to the fungus and has declined through most of its range in central Panama, where it is endemic. This is the brown color form. It’s now extremely rare to see one in the wild.

This is a project designed to establish captive breeding populations of frogs at risk of extinction from the frog-killing Chryttrid fungus. This is an arboreal species from a restricted habitat in central Panama. They have such a small distribution because of rainforest destruction.

Endangered Toad mountain harlequin frogs (Atelopus certus) in amplexus at the Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project. This is a project designed to establish captive breeding populations of frogs at risk of extinction from the frog-killing Chrytrid fungus. This species is thought to be highly threatened by the fungus, so it has been brought into captive breeding programs.
