Public awareness and education have been integrated into the project wherever possible.
Examples include the following:
- This bilingual website has been an easily accessible method for disseminating information about the species, project, and materials such as the husbandry manual.
- Many training opportunities have been created for US and Panamanian students and AZA zoo/aquarium staff in field techniques.
A classroom curriculum was developed and in 2003 a golden frog conservation workshop was offered to school teachers in Panama by members of PGF/PRD in order to educate school-age children (In Spanish)

Preserved frogs from the captive colony were distributed to over a dozen museum collections in the US so future researchers will have access to specimens once the species no longer exists in the wild.
