In search of the giant squeaker frog

When biologist Gilbert Adum came across the giant squeaker frog aka Arthroleptis krokosua in Ghana's Sui Forest Reserve a few years ago, it captured his heart and his imagination. His organization "Save the frogs! Ghana" is devoted to the research and conservation of the threatened amphibian, which had previously been considered extinct in the area. The work also improves the quality of life for local communities. Adum won the Whitley Award - dubbed the "Green Oscar" - for his trailblazing work.
