Education and Outreach2009 - PRESENT
One of the educational programs of the the Amphibian Foundation is the 2nd Grade Poison Frog Feeding Experiment. 2nd Graders learn how to raise Poison Frogs, design terraria, feed frogs, collect data and generate hypotheses. Groups of frogs are fed different prey items, and the groups growth rates can then be calculated and compared. Rainforest habitats can be studied so that accurate and healthy environments can be created in the classroom for keeping healthy frogs. Frogs are donated by The Amphibian Foundation and local Poison Frog breeders. (remember: Poison Frogs are safe and NOT toxic in captivity!)Read More
