Our lack of knowledge is clearly hampering conservation planning efforts and merely having sooglossid frogs present in protected areas may not be enough to ensure their long-term survival. Our aims are therefore:
•To enhance our knowledge on the four known sooglossid frogs’ ecology, focusing on their distribution patterns and habitat requirements.
•To explore the current and potential threats posed by introduced species, diseases, climate change, and land use within protected areas.
•To develop a comprehensive conservation action plan that will mobilise more funding and action on the ground across all protected areas.
Tadpoles develop on the parents back until they have metamorphosed into froglets capable of independent living.
The Seychelles palm frog was described as a new species in 2002 and is only found within a tiny range on Silhouette Island.
Thomasset‘s frog is the largest and rarest species in the Seychelles frog family.
This species is among the smallest frogs in the world, with adults measuring just 11 mm in length.
