Frogs of Madagascar

The Boophis goudoti is one of hundreds of frogs endemic to the island of Madagascar. Every single frog species in Madagascar can be found now where else in the world, however frogs are particularly imperiled on this island.

Deforestation, human consumption, the pet trade, and climate change, all threaten the amphibians of Madagascar. A website, Sahonagasy, created by herptologists is working to save these unique and beautiful species.
