For 10 years, Romeo, the last known Sehuencas water frog on the planet, has lived at the museum. There haven’t been any frogs of this species spotted in the wild. Now scientists have found a girlfriend for him. On a recent expedition to a Bolivian Cloud Forest, Global Wildlife Conservation and the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d’Orbigny rediscovered Sehuencas water frogs in the wild, including Juliet, who will play a critical role in saving her species from extinction. Juliet is acclimatizing to her new environment at the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d’Orbigny in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and will be introduced to Romeo soon.
