Determine the presence of the endemic harlequin frog (Atelopus epikeisthos) in the Key Biodiversity Area known as 7 km al Este de Chachapoyas in northern Peru. If the frog is found, the project will identify threats to its survival, recommend follow-up conservation strategies and disseminate the findings.

Strategic Direction: 1 Improve protection and management of 36 priority KBAs to create and maintain local support for conservation and to mitigate key threats.
