Merry Christmas!

IMG_0101This year has been very eventful, and even into December has been no different for us. Only last week Matt and I came back from Germany and Holland with some new Harlequin toads which we will be working with in preparation for some rarer species we hope to work with this coming year. Stunning animals, all settling in well and already on display.

This year we have achieved such a lot in many ways and I am so very grateful to all the people who have supported our efforts. I give my thanks and appreciation, as always, to Adam, Matt, and Tom, as well as Amanda, Claes, and Brian Kubicki especially. Some highlights from the past year are featured in images below (month and activity when you hover over them) but are really too numerous to mention here.

 

This coming year seems like its going to be an amazing one too – lots of plans already underway, January will start with reporting back from Sweden, the launch of Learning with Lucy at the museum by the Ambassador of Costa Rica, and much more.. with the year sure to have more than a few surprises, as usual!

I sincerely hope you have enjoyed following the blog and thank you all also for your support. I wish you a very Merry Christmas!  –  and that the New Year brings a wonderful time ahead for you and yours!

Learning with Lucy

Lucy MarlandLearning with Lucy is a new Environmental Education project being officially launched at Manchester Museum by His Excellency H.E. Enrique Castillo, the Ambassador of Costa Rica. Aimed at Primary school level learning, and featuring Lucy Marland and the conservation of the Lemur Leaf Frog, this project is supported visually by a series of 3 short videos (which I invite you to watch below), classroom activity worksheets, etc. It is available in both English and Spanish Languages.

IMG_70809 year old Lucy has joined forces with us at The University of Manchester after coming face to face with a Lemur Leaf Frog at Manchester Museum. The project aims to educate primary age school children in the UK and in the Guayacan region of Costa Rica, where the frog still survives, about the amphibian and its habitat.

Backing the campaign, Sir David Attenborough said: “I wholeheartedly support Manchester Museum’s campaign, headed by Lucy Marland, to save the Lemur Leaf Frog. It is after all, one of the world’s most unusual and rarest amphibians – and it is in real trouble.”

Frogflyer_front copyStill thinking of what to give that hard to buy for person at Christmas?..

Perhaps Sponsoring a Frog or donating in support of a critically endangered species on their behalf might be just the ticket!?

Donation Gifts can be for any amount, and for this a special letter of thanks together with a limited edition print and conservation pack will be sent out directly to your person of choice.

Lemur Frog Sponsorship also includes a lovely book on Frogs and Toads of the World by Chris Mattison, and the opportunity for a behind the scenes vivarium visit!

 

Don’t miss the date – our last day for Donation Gifts and Frog Sponsorship packages being sent out is 17th December and we only have a few sponsorship packs left!
