Oophaga lehmanni
Lehmann’s poison frog(Oophaga lehmanni): Endemic to Colombia, Lehmann's poison frog is critically endangered due to habitat fragmentation and illegal pet trade. Despite its plight, poison frogs are significant to local indigenous communities in Colombia who have long used their poison for hunting. Moreover, the Lehmann’s poison frog is named after the Colombian conservation biologist, Federico Carlos Lehmann who, in the early age of environmental preservation, promoted conservation legislation. His work led to the creation of four protected areas in Colombia as well as the Cali Departmental Natural Sciences Museum.
