Dr. Chris Stanton in BW's biology department accompanied 18 students for a service abroad project to help the University of Costa Rica address this issue.
“These frogs only lay their eggs on leaves hanging over ponds,” Stanton said. The students and Stanton dug an artificial pond designed to help tree frogs lay more eggs.
Although they were unable to complete this project due to time constraints, the students received an invaluable service experience. Stanton noted that he will offer an expanded project for this trip in 2015.
