In this episode of the Life Sciences Podcast I decided to talk about something slightly different from the usual “check out this really cool science fact” that I tend to go for. This time I wanted to tell you a story that begun with one man’s search for a very rare frog, more than 12 years ago, and led to the construction of a research station in one of the most biodiverse places on the planet.
Space coordinates: Ecuador, Sumaco National Park, Payamino.
Other characters: an elusive and strange looking frog with vertical pupils and the Quichwa tribe of Amazonian Ecuador.
I won’t say any more, go and listen to the podcast and let Richard and Andrew transport you to this place of incomparable beauty!
