With only about 150 to 200 of these brightly colored frogs left in the world, experts like Michael McFadden are working to bring them back from the brink of extinction. “In the facility we are standing in today [at Taronga Zoo], we have about double what’s left in the world, so they are in real dire straights at the moment,” Michael says.
