Love this. Celebrate frogs on Leap Day: #biodiversity

The Lemur Leaf Frog, Agalychnis lemur, remains one of the world’s most Critically Endangered amphibians. The live specimens that are maintained at The Manchester Museum in the UK are from one of the last remaining populations in Costa Rica, and the captive breeding program there was first started in 2001. Over the years, young animals bred at the Museum have been distributed to zoos around the world, including Bristol Zoo in England, the Vancouver Aquarium in Canada, and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in the US.
