José, his father and his family built a great nature reserve for frogs and birds. Visiting Frogs Heaven helps to support their work. José is a great help in getting stunning pictures of their frogs.

We had so much fun at frogs heaven. We learned a lot about frogs, sloths and birds (and saw many, even though it was midday!) and even met some American biologists that do research at frogs heaven because of the biodiversity.
