Scientists are now searching for a partner of the only sehuencas water frog named Romeo, which has stayed for ten years without a lover.
The efforts are made ahead of valentine day, Wednesday February 14 by two institutions, the Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC), and the Bolivian Amphibian Initiative.
The two have created a website match.com as a dating profile and are raising $15,000 (£10,800) by Valentine’s Day to support the Initiatives to locate where the species once lived.
Reports published by the Mirror said the two have joined forced to find ways of getting a female mate of Romeo, a male Bolivian frog to produce species of the kind.
A frog who lives in a tank in a Bolivian museum is the last of his species, according to Quartz.
The founder of Bolivian Amphibian Initiatives, Arturo Muno says Romeo is the only Sehuencas water frog known to exist.
Muno said when Romeo was collected 10 years ago, biologists considers him an ordinary frog.
He says they took him- Sehuencas water frog, like other amphibians in Bolivia, was in trouble .
"Romeo started to call for a mate about a year after he was brought into captivity, but those calls have slowed in the last few years.
Biologists have not given hope-helping Romeo get a mate.
According to expert the kind of species live up to 15 years, but Romeo has 10 already.
Reports say environmental scientists are searching in rivers to find a mate for him before the year elapses and already have reacted a dating profile in website they have called match.com.
“We don’t want him to lose hope, and we continue to remain hopeful that others are out there,” said Muno.
Another conservationist said it was a big challenge to find a mate for Romeo, but “We have too.”
The CEO of Match of which the website is made from, Hesam Hosseini says they have been helping singles to get their mate successfully in more than 20 years now.
“We hope we shall find one for Romeo. We believe there is truly someone for everyone,” says Hosseini.
