The Golden Toad was a conservation icon, found only within an area of a few square miles in the cloud forests of Monteverde, Costa Rica. Its' sudden disappearance in the late 1980's was one of what turned out to be numerous catastrophic events for amphibian populations around the world, and helped trigger an ongoing, thirty-year effort by the scientific community to understand why amphibians are in so much trouble.

Wainwright grew up in England, obtained his undergraduate degree at Middlebury College, and has lived and worked in Costa Rica since 1991. Most of his work relates to environmental education and conservation. He works as a lead or guest instructor for dozens of academic programs each year, primarily tropical ecology and conservation-related courses for undergraduate or high school programs from the United States. 

All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a copy of Wainwright's book - "Mammals of Costa Rica."
