Atlanta Amphibian Conservation Update

In the next week, we are moving to a new level in amphibian conservation. It’s an exciting time for change and growth. We have the most incredible, passionate and talented partners and are looking forward to getting out there and conserving frogs and salamanders. Change also inspires me to reflect on the past bunch of years and some of the awesome species we have worked with -  the opportunities and as well as accomplishments. This is a repost, but it is one of my favorite pictures from ABG. This is a Granular Glass Frog, Cochranella granulosa. This picture was taken with my phone, through the glass of one of the frogs on exhibit. It was directly after the exhibit misting and the frog just looked so perfect. I was lucky that it stayed still and allowed me to get this shot. Glass frogs are transparent on their ventral surface, but their dorsal coloration can be quite beautiful. C. granulosa often has shades of blue mixed with green on their dorsum
