The project technician joins the team

Although three researchers form the team SOS Amphibians and we have several collaborators, we needed someone who is devoted exclusively to the project.

Our newly recruited technician, Celia Serrano, has a degree in Biology and gained much of her experience with amphibians in Canada, where she worked with the most endangered amphibian species in that country, the Oregon Spotted Frog (Rana pretiosa). This frog is severely threatened by habitat destruction and introduced species such as the American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus).

Here you can see a video on this species:

During her time in Canada, Celia learned techniques for handling amphibians, marking them with microchips, monitoring them by radio telemetry and population censuses. Later she decided that her main interest was the restoration of amphibian habitats, and so returned to Madrid to study the master's in Ecosystem Restoration.

celia muestreandoCelia will be undertake a large part of the field work, from sampling and monitoring populations to laboratory work involving molecular analysis of samples, and the maintenance of Breeding Centre. Celia will also coordinate the work of publicizing the project and volunteer organization.
