She travels to a remote region of Colombia’s wild west to look for one of the world’s most toxic animals: phyllobates terribilis, the golden poison frog. Protecting it from extinction isn’t an easy job – it lives among gold mines, drug runners, guerillas and local people sceptical of protecting a frog that could kill them. Can Lucy’s love for this rare orange frog convince them?
