A Panamanian golden frog leaps from the hand of Vancouver Aquarium director of animal operations Dr. Dennis Thoney at the aquarium in Vancouver, B.C., on Thursday March 27, 2014. The aquarium has successfully bred the frogs, thought to be extinct in the wild, as part of a worldwide effort to preserve the species. They are native to the mountainous, higher-altitude regions of western-central Panama and the goal is to eventually re-populate their natural habitat in the country.
