Species/Topic: Panamanian Golden Frog (Atelopus zeteki)
Abstract: The Panamanian golden frog is in imminent danger of extinction. Prior research on this species is limited. This project will facilitate golden frog conservation and reintroduction through the acquisition of knowledge of the natural history, ecology, and behavior of the species. This knowledge will be used to aid in in-situ conservation efforts and in the implementation of a competent and comprehensive recovery/reintroduction plan.
