His next documentary will highlight the imperiled species from around the world. The amphibian component will feature our Amphibian Conservation Program and was filmed in the frogPOD. The frogPOD houses, in isolation from other amphibians, one of the rarest assemblages of amphibians — all rescued from a chytrid fungus outbreak in Central Panama in 2005. Not the most spacious of places to film, but it worked. I will be sure to post when the movie is released.
Here are some pictures from the filming.

|Axle is the photographer for the film. They were all careful to disinfect any equipment that might come into contact with the frogs, or brought in brand new stuff|
|Gastrotheca cornuta, the Eyelash Marsupial Frog is an extremely rare and photogenic species|
