Amphibian populations have been declining and entire species have been going extinct for a multitude of reasons over the past century, but since the 1980s, a deadly fungus has been decimating amphibians around the globe. The epicenter of this devastation and much of the subsequent research has occurred in Central America. In 2014, Lincoln Park Zoo’s Dan Boehm visited Panama with researchers to study the disease and search for any Panamanian golden frogs left in the wild. This event will include a live stream of animals feeding at Regenstein Small Mammal-Reptile House. Grab some flapjacks and OJ and join this new version of Breakfast with the Animals to learn about this grueling and treacherous conservation work, topped off with a truly amazing ending. Recommended for ages 12 and older.
