More than 50 amphibian and reptile species were recorded during last year's workshop, including this spectacular Reticulated Glass Frog (Hyalinobatrachium valerioi). Click here for more information!


 Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center

This reserve, located in Guayacán, Siquirres, is a MUST for hardcore amphibian enthusiasts!! The frog diversity on this reserve is unequaled by any other site in Costa Rica and well worth it.

Brian Kubicki, the owner, is an expert in the field and time spent with him exploring the reserve is invaluable. Highly recommended!

Identifying Costa Rica's abundant wildlife can be challenging! Field guides are fantastic tools but can be cumbersome to carry in the field. Now you can have volumes of species accounts at your fingertips!

The new Animals of Costa Rica App by Gernot Kunz covers every animal group and contains about 6000 photographs featuring more than 4000 mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, insects, arachnids and fish. We highly recommend the "All Species Package". Click here for more information
