Presence Uncertain: Guinea; Liberia

The Mount Nimba Reed Frog lives in Côte d’Ivoire #Africa and is #endangered due to #rainforest #clearance for #palmoil #mining and #meat #agriculture. Support this forgotten species with a brand #Boycott4Wildlife

The Mount Nimba Reed Frog lives in clearings in lowland forest, where they call to each other at the edge of large swamps. They presumably breeds in swamps. The main threat to these frogs is the establishment of rice fields and plantations. The species might be able to support some extent of habitat degradation and might actually benefit from changes to rice fields. However, the extent to which the species can adapt to the opening up of their habitat is unknown. Logging and construction for human settlements also occurs in the forest near their habitat and might therefore be a potential threat (M.-O. Rödel and N.G. Kouame pers. comm. June 2012).

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices
