This is good to hear. Tropical islands seem to always need help, especially when people are working to deforest them completely.

insteresting, they shoudl go to Hawaii and get a ton of them, they have becomed an invassive species on the big island and are being eradicated as they are now posing a danger to local species.
Wrong coqui... many of the frogs in this genus are colloquially called coquis. The one in Hawaii isn't at any risk.

Over 100 in the entire Carribbean, I think 16 in Puerto Rico.

Hi Julio,

The Golden Coqui (Eleutherodactylus jasperi), yet another "coqui", is a federally-listed frog from Puerto Rico that is endemic to a tiny area of mountain top bromeliad thickets. All of the populations are on privaely held land, so it is another species in a very vulnerable state.

Take care, Richard.

ah ok, how many different species of Coquis are there?
