the project

The Giant of the Pampas is an initiative developed and executed by researchers and conservationists from Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil in response to population declines and local extinctions of the Horned Frog (Ceratophrys ornata).

 

Our objective is to carry out conservation and management actions for the species based on studies of distributional, genetic, reproductive and demographic aspects.

 

Over the last years we have been gathering new information on the species in the Argentine territory. These results could not have been obtained without the intervention and support of rural residents and citizens linked to the environments where the Giant lives.

The time has come to deepen the search strategies in Brazil and Uruguay! We hope that citizen participation will also be a vital component of the initiative in these countries.

 

We are in search of the Giant of the Pampas!

Help us find it!
