Amphibian staff at the 35th International Herpetological Symposium

Dante and I were able to attend the 35th International Herpetological Symposium in Maryland last week. Dante is a long time contributor, and this was my first time at IHS.

We both gave presentations highlighting our conservation efforts at the Garden, and Dante was also the banquet keynote speaker, where he gave a visually captivating presentation highlighting a couple of decades of his work high up in tree canopies — where one needs to go if they would like to encounter frogs that never come to the ground.

It was a fantastic meeting, and I know we are both looking forward to the 36th next year in New Orleans!
