Hula Painted Frog
This frog was last seen in 1955 on the shores of Israel's Lake Huleh. That's around the same time that the Huleh marshes were drained in an effort to wipe out malaria and to convert the land to agricutural use. Biologists will search for the frog in the 5 percent of the wetlands that remained after drainage.
