      The Biodiversity Group's- TOAD-ally Charity Extravaganza

      For ONE fun-filled evening the TOAD-ally Charity Extravaganza is going to be held during a Full Moon Night at the Metal Arts Village in Tucson at the Haunted Hands Gallery on January 19th! Come celebrate the New Year with us and enjoy local artist's paintings, illustrations and sculptures all with a Biology converging with Art theme. Time to dork out on some unique and local art!!

      Scientific illustrations, detailed paintings of unique creatures, and even a wall of seriously crazy-beautiful Sea Slug (Nudibranch) sculptures. Haunted Hands Gallery is generously opening their space to our non-profit for this event where we will also have activities such as LIVE SCREEN PRINTING with Tucson's Tanline Printing of our new Give a F*(rog) about Biodiversity T-shirts ♥

      Why is it so TOAD-ally awesome you ask? This Charity Event is benefiting our conservation science research efforts with the endangered Tandayapa Andean Toad in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. The Biodiversity Group’s collaborators rediscovered a small population of this toad that had been thought extinct for over 40 years in a small pristine section of the cloud forest in Ecuador. We are now working as fast and as hard as we can to research this untouched primary forest and its overlooked inhabitants to help protect it from external forces which are presently, yes, RIGHT NOW, trying to seize it and devastate it.
      Our research efforts are crucial towards saving this beautiful cloud forest and these toads. On previous expeditions, this cloud forest has shown a HUGE result in new biodiversity (species) previously unknown to science existing in this area.

      It is a literal HOT SPOT for biodiversity!

      What is Biodiversity? We are glad you asked! It is the biological diversity that surrounds us, so the variation in different animals/species that can be found all over the world. Biodiversity is imperative for an ecosystem to remain healthy and properly functioning, so giving a F*(rog) about it is very important!

      See you there!!
