We made great progress with them and it shouldn1/3 Endangered Honduran tree frogs: Cusuco Spike-Thumb frogs, made for @myfrogcroaked using his rad photos of the species he is working to save. Each species has a variety of color morphologies 😍 insta topsy.one#frogfriday

Looking into an uncertain future, the critically endangered Exquisite Spike-thumb Frog (#Plectrohyla exquisita). Only found in the cloud forests of #Cusuco NP, #Honduras, this squishy beauty suffered extreme population declines, but a small group of conservationists fights to protect it and other endemic frog species from CusucoOn my way to #Honduras with my #HARCC @frogrescue team! If you need me, IIT’S THEIR EARTH DAY, TOO: If you think about it: we need wildlife more than wildlife needs us. 
Frogs, from the moment they are tadpoles, protect clean drinking water by eating algae and other plant material. They don’t call them river lawnmowers for nothing!

Hundreds of millions of people are infected by mosquito-borne illnesses each year, resulting in more than one million deaths. Frogs are here to help! The tadpoles of some frogs are carnivorous and kill mosquito eggs and larvae, controlling the spread of these diseases.

Frogs also serve as an important food source for many other animals. A diversity of fish, birds, snakes, mammals and insects prey upon frogs and would have a difficult time finding enough food to eat if they disappeared. And they very well could. 
Biologists believe one-half of the Earth’s animals will be extinct by 2100 because of our actions. 
The power is in our hands and, thankfully, there’s still time. As a Zoo, we’re fighting to save amphibians in Cusuco National Park from extinction.
