Frogs for the Ark

At the moment I am visiting Norden’s Ark on Sweden’s west coast, a truly wonderful place and an important collaborator in the Lemur Leaf Frog Project. Over the past 18 months they have been working hard to build a new facility especially for maintaining Lemur frogs that form part of the official ex-situ breeding programme established to help conserve the species for the future.

It is a real pleasure to be working with Norden’s Ark and we are very grateful for all their valuable continued support.
