Four wildlife biologists step from a small plane and into a remote rainforest to begin the adventure of a lifetime. Their goal: to find, study, and hopefully save an elusive and tiny amphibian. They are searching for the blue poison-dart frog. Ron Fridell's book, The Search for Poison-Dart Frogs, written for the Wildlife Conservation Society, puts the reader on the rivers, the grassland trails, and the mountain slopes, as the biologists hike to the only place in the world where blue poison dart-frogs live-Suriname, South America. Along with native guides and translators, the U.S. researchers travel by dugout canoe and on foot, enduring high temperatures, intense humidity, and clouds of mosquitoes. Along the journey, the reader learns about scientific field study, poison-dart frogs, and the determination of conservationists to study these tiny members of the animal kingdom. Brillant color photographs capture life on the trail and the astonishing beauty of poison-dart frogs. The Search for Poison-Dart Frogs is a personal story, a scientific story, and a story that enlightens and inspires readers of all ages.
