Why Should We Care About Haiti’s Frogs?

“Why bother with Haiti? There’s nothing left.” That was the question often posed to CI’s Amphibian Conservation Officer Robin Moore when he recently set out to search for frogs in the country’s fragmented forests.

In the wake of last year’s earthquake, whose effects continue to plague the country’s people, the relative resilience of certain amphibian species reveals that it’s not too late to take action to protect Haiti’s remaining forests — critical for preventing erosion and providing fresh water and other services to Haiti’s people.

Check out this short video to see Robin Moore in action in Haiti — and learn more about why, given the scale of current problems in Haiti, we should care about frogs.
