Honduras Amphibian Rescue & Conservation Center (HARCC)

The Honduras Amphibian Rescue & Conservation Center (HARCC) is working to help save frogs and other amphibians from Chytrid fungus. Chytrid fungus has decimated frog populations around the globe. To help the amphibians that live in the Cusuco National Park, HARCC provides a head start program for frogs. They capture juvenile frogs and treat them for Chytrid, raise them to be healthy adults, and then return them in the wild. HARCC also provides a captive assurance program so that if something bad happened to the remaining frogs in the wild, they could re-populate the area.

Some of the frogs they help are the Mossy Red-Eyed Frog (Duellmanohyla Soralia), Exquisite Spike-Thumb Frog (Plectrohyla exquisita), and Cusuco Spike-Thumb Frog (Plectrohyla dasypus).

They do great work, donate today.
