Golden Toad (1989) The golden toad is not the only species to disappear in the past 40 years, but it might just be the brightest. This fluorescent amphibian was found in the high-altitude ridges of Costa Rica, but thanks to pollution, global warming and fungal skin infections, the species became extinct in 1989.

Holdridge's Toad - Endemic to the rainforests of Costa Rica, it was declared extinct in October 2008. Regular surveys and extensive searches from 2000 to 2007 failed to locate the species. The main cause of the toad's population decline and extinction is likely chytridiomycosis, an amphibian disease, perhaps in collaboration with the effects of climate change.
