The lemur leaf frog (Agalychnis lemur) field season has been radically reinvented due to unforeseen travel restrictions. In Costa Rica the national parks have now reopened so preparations are resuming. Our local field expert has taken charge of the field surveys and is beginning the first stage of the fieldwork for the year. It is likely that we will avoid community-based objectives this year and focus on surveying the wider range of this elusive species closer to its extant range in Panama.
