CREA manages the Cocobolo Nature Reserve in Panama. It has identified and monitored an existing population of Atelopus limosus here. We obtained funding to continue the monitoring and undertake a Bd analysis which suggests negative occurrence, although further testing is currently being undertaken with other species.

CREA offers undergraduate and high school courses and promotes the conservation of amphibians and other species in these courses. CREA also works with local communities to promote the conservation of habitat.
