Princesses have been known to rescue frogs but there remains one frog in the world who desperately needs a princess to kiss him. Unlike Disney’s script, a kiss even from the most beautiful woman on earth won’t do the trick for this lonely Sehuencas Water Frog named Romeo. He primarily need is to get laid with another amphibian bearing his genes to stop his species from extinction. Romeo is out and about to find his Juliet this Valentine’s Day with the help of his friends at the Global Wildlife Conservation.
Romeo, a Bolivian native river frog was found by scientists 10 years ago but his rescuers have not been able to find a mate for him since. To stop himself from spending yet another lonely Valentine’s Day, he appealed on social media like most human beings, to help him out by donating to the Conservation. The money will be used to turn scientists into Cupid for Romeo to scout Bolivian streams and rivers for a female Sehuencas water frog.
The video shared on Facebook and dating website Match attempts to raise $15,000 by Valentine’s Day so that scientists can make at least 10 expeditions to where his species was once common and in areas with similar environment. Romeo is expected to live till 15 which leaves very little time for him to find someone, making his ‘call’ urgent. His wingman and conservation scientist, Arturo Munoz said he does not want Romeo to lose hope. While Romeo’s mating calls have decreased over the years, his friends still want to see him hitched in the hope of saving his species.
The world’s last white Rhino, Sudan too had sought refuge on Tinder last year to help raise awareness and money for his protection.
