Golden Frogs Are Reproduced In Captivity At The EVACC

Animals & PetsThe tenacious scientific work to preserve the tiny golden frog, a symbolic animal for Panamanians since pre-Colombian times, and endangered due to the spread of a fungus began to bear fruit through captive reproduction.

The El Valle Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project (EVACC), involving Panamanian and foreign scientists, announced they have managed to reproduce 42 healthy golden frogs, they now have six months of age.

Frogs have an average lifespan of eight to ten years. The project's director, Heidi Ross, said it is the first time since 2006, when he started the initiative, that they have managed to add the golden frog in their list of amphibian species bred in captivity at their facility. The EVACC is located in the Amphibian Conservation Center at the Anton Valley, in Cocle, which also works successfully in the conservation of other 18 species, 11 of those are endangered. (Critica)
