Boana punctata, the polka-dot treefrog, passes the time on a broad leaf in the Hacienda Jacana forest retreat and lodge in Central Trinidad. As the name implies, treefrogs spend most of their lives living in trees and tall vegetation. Trinidad’s lush forests are home to several species of these (usually) tiny amphibians, as they are to a host of plant and animal life. Sunday, June 5 was World Environment Day, the day the United Nations has established to encourage awareness and action to protect our environment. UWI St Augustine has a thriving community of scientists, agriculturalists, and nature enthusiasts dedicated to studying the natural world and finding new solutions for us to live in harmony with its colourful denizens.
