Breeding exotic frogs to curb illegal animal trafficking in Colombia

Americas Now

A Colombian man is breeding rare frogs to save them from extinction through animal trafficking.

After drugs and weapons, wildlife trafficking is considered to be the third largest illegal business on the planet. According to the US State Department the illicit industry takes in $10 billion each year.

Birds are the most trafficked animal with numbers reaching into the millions.

In Colombia, the international trafficking of rare frogs is threatening the survival of some species.

Our Game Changer has come up with a way to save them from that fate. Meet the founder of Treasures of Colombia, Ivan Lozano.
