Project Summary

While the species was once common, it has not been recorded since 2010; consequently, very little is known about the species. To save the treefrog from extinction, Fundación ProAves seeks to implement an innovative project that will commence with comprehensive research to gather necessary biological data about the species, including the abundance of population densities at key sites. This information will be analysed and presented to stakeholders and experts, who will collaborate to develop a conservation action plan for the species, which will be implemented by ProAves. In addition to establishing new protected areas and restoring habitat, ProAves will launch an educational campaign to raise awareness about the treefrog among the community within the species’ range. Through this multi-faceted project, we seek to expand the species’ protected habitat and reverse its population trend from decreasing to increasing, so that its Red List status ultimately can be downgraded from Critically Endangered.


Objectives

Research: Rapid survey techniques for 5 days at 40 different locations across the species range, including nocturnal searches, live pitfall traps and other standard techniques used to search for amphibians.

Practice: Research results will be shared with stakeholders and experts, who will collaborate to develop a conservation action plan for the species, which will be implemented by ProAves.

Outreach: In addition to establishing new protected areas and restoring habitat, ProAves will launch an educational campaign to raise awareness about the Colombian tree frog among the community within the species’ range.
