"That infernal Danté has done it again . . . Knowing that you cannot care about things you've never seen, he uses his talents to present compelling images of animals that elude us because they do not live in the daylight as we do. And through this awareness, he hopes that you begin to care, and that through this caring you will act to conserve. It is a powerful arguement, one that I hope you will heed." —Michael J. Lannoo, editor of Amphibian Declines: The Conservation Status of United States Species
