i February 25 j Nature

MORE GREAT NEWS FROM QUITO, ECUADOR – A team of U.S. and Ecuadorian scientists have rediscovered a population of the once thought extinct Tandayapa Andean Toad (Andinophryne olallai). The Toad was rediscovered in the remote cloud forests of northwest Ecuador, after 43 years. Experts shared that this remarkable find is the beginning of the creation of some concrete conservation actions to ensure the species stays off the "Lost Frogs List.” We couldn't be more excited considering the cloud forest is a place where we have hiked and enjoyed life at its purest!
