Prince Charles is adding to his long list of prestigious honors. So, what is the special achievement? Recently, a newly discovered tree frog has been named after the royal figure, BBC Nature reports.

The Prince Charles stream tree frog, aka Hyloscirtus princecharlesi, was first discovered in 2008 by Dr. Luis A. Coloma. Another research trip was conducted in the Cotacachi-Cayapas National Park, located in Ecuador, where a limited number of these special frogs were discovered. The number was so small due to forests being cleared for agriculture.

Currently, as part of the Amphibian Ark project, two young frogs are now being raised in captivity in hopes of expanding their breeding and population futures. They are also taking Prince Charles’s name.

Why name after Prince Charles? He is being recognized for his charity work when it comes to protecting rainforests. In 2007, he started The Prince’s Rainforest Project to protect rainforests.

He hopes to stop deforestation and get others involved and help spread awareness. As he says on PRP’s website, “If we lose the battle against tropical deforestation, we lose the battle against climate change.”

Naming tree frogs after Prince Charles seems quite fitting.
