Leilani Munter placing a picture of our resident Rabbs' Fringe-limbed Tree Frog on her race car for her next race!

Leilani Munter, and inspiring race care driver, activist and contributor to the feature film 'Racing Extinction' which sheds some much needed light on the global extinction crisis and features the Rabbs' Fring-limbed Tree Frog which is believed to be the last of its kind, and also resides in the frogPOD at the Garden. Here she is placing a Rabbs' frog decal on the side of her car, which she is about to take to 190 mph.

The Rabbs' frog, Ecnomiohyla rabborum, was out in the frogPOD today when I checked on him
 
 Leilani sent these pictures to me today from the Daytona Raceway, where she took her electric car, adorned with a picture of our Rabbs' Fringe-limed Tree Frog, to 190 mph. Leilani, visited the Garden after the frog was projected 30 stories high on the UN building last October during the #ProjectingChange event which highlighted endangered species and the (then) upcoming feature film — Racing Extinction. Leilani is a huge proponent of achieving freedom from oil. To learn more about her efforts to achieve energy freedom, please visit 100.org
