He noted that it is very important that this type of research is done as it helps persons to better understand the species; it gives an idea of the population and habitat distribution and also to learn more about the species and its dynamics so that it can be conserved.

In this respect, he said that the National Parks Commission and the Board will be better able to manage the habitats to ensure that the Golden Rocket Frog’s population remains high at Kaieteur Park.
