Puerto Rican Crested Toad Recovery Program


This program was developed in the 1980′s to ensure the long-term survival of Puerto Rico’s only toad species, the Puerto Rican Crested Toad (Peltophryne lemur) .

Also known as Sapo Concho Puertorriqueno, the toad is now critically endangered because of a variety of threats.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is working with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Puerto Rican Department of Natural Resources (PRDNER), and a number of NGOs to ensure its survival.
