Flora and Fauna

In January 2015, a rare frog, previously seen only in primary forest in Ecuador was found for the first time in Perú on the Santa Cruz site, interestingly, on previously developed land. The difficult work of identifying and verifying the species, Pristimantis orphnolaemus, was the result of world-class herpetologists who are friends of Project Amazonas and who visit the facilities often.

More surprising is finding what you're not looking for - guaranteed to find things you've never seen every day and every night on every hike, or even just relaxing!
