Thursday 23rd March 2023. As part of its program to reintroduce the endemic frog species, Mantella aurantiaca, Ambatovy released more than 1,800 individuals into the wild in 2022. Classified as an endangered species by the IUCN, the Mantella aurantiaca benefits from a reintroduction program initiated by Ambatovy and carried out in collaboration with Mitsinjo Association, who are responsible for the management of the Toby Sahona Project, in Andasibe. As a reminder, the Mantella aurantiaca was previously classified as a critically endangered species; however, thanks to the efforts of Ambatovy and its scientific partners, it is currently categorized as an endangered species. The program has been running since 2012 and over 1,500 captive-bred individuals were reintroduced into the wild for the first time in 2017. Through this initiative and based on the positive experiences, Ambatovy continues to release Mantella aurantiaca into their natural environment and works with national experts to ensure the health and adaptation of the frogs to their new habitats. The program will continue in 2023 and 2024 in collaboration with national experts and will focus on their rescue, reintroduction into the wild, and monitoring.
