Mannophryne olmonae: an ecological study in Tobago (Republic of Trinidad and Tobago)

Jahson Berhane Alemu I

Mannophryne olmonae is a poorly studied endemic to Tobago, listed as Critically Endangered by the IUCN. The population has undergone a rapid decline, over the last three generations (Hardy, 2004). An ecological study of M. olmonae will be performed to collect data invaluable to the scientific community, as part of a long-term conservation strategy to raise awareness of frogs and habitat importance through training workshops, posters, and other educational material.
