The best place for frog-spotting in Costa Rica

Last week I had the opportunity to visit the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center (CRARC) outside of Siquirres in Limón Province, Costa Rica. I’ll be doing a feature story on CRARC soon, but I want to share a few pictures from the trip.



Briefly, CRARC aims to conserve some of the world’s most endangered amphibian species by enhancing and rehabilitating habitats and breeding sites, captive-breeding, and protecting habitat. CRARC is also actively involved in amphibian research.



CRARC is working in an area of incredible amphibian biodiversity. In my first 12 hours at the site I spotted nearly 40 species of frogs. Here are a few examples. Many more pictures to come.
