CHIRP - Coqui Hawaiian Integration and Reeducation Project



Frogs are dying worldwide because of pollution, while people are trying to kill frogs in Hawaii by polluting the environment. Are these coqui frogs really frogs of mass destruction, or is Hawaii just having a bad case of enviromania?

Detailed Information:
Some people consider the frogs invasive aliens that threaten the environment and quality of life in Hawaii. Others consider the frogs exotic immigrants that can improve the environment and quality of life in Hawaii.
Some people hate the nighttime mating song of the frogs, which keeps them awake. Others enjoy the coqui’s bird-like chirp and find that it soothes them to sleep, like the sound of crickets.

Whether the frogs are good or bad is a matter of opinion. But one thing seems certain. The frogs are in Hawaii and are here to stay. For some, this means war. For others, this means acceptance. We hope this website helps you better understand the coqui frogs and learn to accept, and appreciate, their presence in Hawaii.
