Michael Horton is an Endangered Species and landscape conservation planning expert with more than 25 years of experience working for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). During this time Michael worked to conserve old growth forests in the Pacific Northwest; vernal pool wetlands and valley floor habitats along with associated amphibian, reptile, mammalian, and bird species in northern and central California; and forested and wetland habitats throughout the northeastern USA. During his last 16 years with the USFWS, Michael worked in the agency’s headquarters office in Washington, D.C. on legal, policy, and regulatory issues, and led development of the Service’s online Information, Planning, and Conservation decision support system (IPaC). Since leaving the USFWS in 2015, Michael has formed his own conservation consulting company, Integrated Planning and Conservation Associates (IPaCA), and now works to facilitate conservation across the U.S.
John Bohrman has been a lover of amphibians and reptiles since early childhood – growing up in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, and giving names to all of the Western fence lizards and Pacific tree frogs in his backyard. John was, until very recently, a hydrographer in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Conservation Biology from CSU Fresno, including a semester studying biology and geology in New Zealand and Australia. When the semester ended, he traveled extensively throughout Australia, doing volunteer work in places like Kakadu National Park. In 2016, John joined SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotours to Ecuador and Peru. John has traveled to Costa Rica several times to see some of his favorite amphibians in their native habitat, including during the SAVE THE FROGS! 2019 Costa Rica Ecotour. These trips inspired him to retire early and make the permanent move to Costa Rica, where he looks forward to doing his part for frog conservation right in his own backyard. Pura Vida!
Choti Singh developed a passion for wildlife and nature as a child. She spent her school years in India, Kenya, and rural Zambia. Among all the animal species she spent time with, Choti was especially drawn to frogs, as well as her early love of snakes! After pursuing a degree in Zoology with a focus in animal behavior, she conducted graduate research involving taste-choice in rodents, as well as maternal bonding in primates. She subsequently specialized in forensic psychology and worked in the mental health field profession, but has maintained her love for conserving wildlife and preserving the environment. Choti has taken part in SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotours in Belize, Ecuador, and Costa Rica, and loves to photograph wildlife. Choti plans to return to Zambia soon.
