Amphibians Index

The warm, wet environment in the rainforest is an ideal habitat for a wide variety of amphibians.  Tiny dart frogs to large bullfrogs add their voices to the cacophony of the rainforest song as they enjoy the rainy environment. Tree frogs abound, many with bright colors and exotic markings to warn potential predators of their poison.  The Red-eyed Tree Frog is synonymous with Costa Rican rain forest, an icon status not afforded to many other frogs.

Become part of the 'Butterfly Effect'

Why Pierella? What is a Pierella?

The Pierella is a butterfly native to Costa Rica – Pierella hevina.
This small creature is behind the theory of the ‘Butterfly Effect’
that states small efforts can result in far reaching outcomes.

Restoring rainforest results in these ‘Butterfly Effects’:
Biodiversity; carbon capture; ecosystem services;
sustainability; and wildlife corridors.
