Conservation Contributions:

Panamanian Golden Frog 

The Cape May County Zoo supports Project Golden Frog, a conservation initiative with the primary goal of preventing the extinction of the Panamanian Golden Frog (Atelopus zeteki), an endangered and culturally significant Bufonidae found in the montane rainforests of Panama. The wild population is threatened most notably by the fungal epizootic Chytridiomycosis which has contributed to the loss of the Costa Rican Golden toad (Bufo perigienes) and the endangerment of other amphibians throughout Central and South America. 
The zoo houses 1.1.9 A. zeteki on loan from the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore who, while not genetically viable at this time, provide an educational opportunity for our visitors. In 2003, former Reptile and Amphibian Curator Jonnie Gove traveled with a team of AZA zoologists to Panama to study the wild population of A. zeteki, including 
the collection of wild specimens for the managed breeding program.

Marginated Turtle

In 2005, our 0.0.4 yellow Marginated box turtles (C. flavomarginata) were sent to Ray Farrell of the Turtle Survival Alliance for breeding. We received 0.0.4 C. flavomarginata hatchlings at that time that are part of a growth study being conducted by Mr. Farrell. Growth measurements are sent every six months along with diet and enclosure information. In 2007 we received 0.4 additional C. flavomarginata hatchlings also included in the study. 
The zoo is currently submitting paperwork to become an institutional member of the Turtle Survival Alliance to allow us to play a more active role in their conservation conducted by Mr. Farrell.

The zoo is currently submitting paperwork to become an institutional member of the Turtle Survival Alliance to allow us to play a more active role in their conservation projects. We have in the past given homes to confiscated Southeast  Asian turtles (P. megacepalum, C. flavomarginata, P. mouhotii).
