I am a first year PhD student interested in doing conservation based eco-toxicology research.

I am hoping to establish a breeding colony or colonies of tropical frogs native to Central America or other tropical regions.

One genus of interest is Dendropsophus. I would like to establish colonies of D. ebraccatus and possibly D. phlebodes. I am also interested in Scinax elaochroa, Hyla rufitela, Lithobates vaillanti, and all Agalychnis sp.

I realize some of these may be obtained via pet trade, but I am curious about the genetic diversity amongst pet trade animals.

Any advice in obtaining any of the above species and setting up colonies would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Are you close to a zoo? The most obvious thing to me would be to get into contact with conservation researchers at a zoo that has the species you are interested in.
