The Coqui Preservation Project emerged as a response to the alarming decline and impending extinction of several subspecies of Coqui frogs in Puerto Rico. Extensive research has identified anthropogenic factors as the primary drivers behind their perilous status. Habitat loss, fragmentation, and degradation due to urbanization, agriculture, and tourism have decimated their natural environments. Invasive species, such as the Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana), African Clawed Frog (Xenopus laevis), and Cane Toad (Rhinella marina), have further compounded their plight, competing for resources and transmitting diseases. Climate change, manifested through increased temperatures and altered precipitation patterns, has disrupted their reproductive cycles and survival rates. These combined environmental pressures have pushed several Coqui subspecies to the brink of extinction, highlighting the urgent need for conservation measures to protect this iconic symbol of Puerto Rico's biodiversity. The Coqui Preservation Project endeavors to address these threats through habitat restoration, invasive species management, climate adaptation strategies, and community engagement to ensure the survival of these critically endangered amphibians.
