Silverstone’s Poison Frog

Silverstone's Poison Frog

The Silverstone’s poison frog is “Endangered” due to its small, declining, threat-defined range and continuing decline of mature individuals due to illegal harvesting.

The Silverstone’s poison frog is listed as Endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species given that its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 2,874 square kilometers, it is considered to occur in two threat-defined locations (based on the currently known disjunct geographical localities and trade pressure exerted in Cordillera Azul) and there is a continuing decline in the number of mature individuals due to illegal harvesting, as well as a decline in the extent and quality of habitat.
