This year we are focusing our efforts on “Saving Life in the Rainforest” for HARCC (Honduras Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Center). As we launch our annual contests in September and have attention focused on the Frogs Are Green organization, we’d like to feature the amazing efforts by Jonathan Kolby and his team to save three endangered frogs.
We’ve designed a special t-shirt to raise funds exclusively for HARCC. Our shirts are printed in the USA on cotton and we offer FREE shipping in the USA. 75% of Profits will go to HARCC. The Paypal button below displays a few options, however, if you do not see what you need, just email us.Exclusively designed t-shirt for HARCC by Susan Newman, founder of Frogs Are Green, and illustrated by Mark Lerer.

(from their website):
Cusuco National Park (CNP) is a global biodiversity hotspot located in northwestern Honduras. This rainforest sits on top of a mountain and is often hidden in a cloud, providing a special “cloud forest” habitat for 16 amphibian species listed as Endangered or Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Some of these amazing amphibians are found nowhere else on Earth. In 2007, we discovered chytrid in this forest (you can read the publication here) and have continued to closely monitor the situation.
The rescue efforts performed by HARCC will reduce both short and long-term extinction threats to 3 Endangered frog species in CNP, including: the Exquisite Spike-thumb Frog (Plectrohyla exquisita), the Cusuco Spike-thumb Frog (Plectrohyla dasypus), and the Mossy Red-eyed Frog (Duellmanohyla soralia).
