The enchanting fairy tale of the little frog and the Big 4 Accountants.

A few years ago I was lucky enough to visit Tanzania. It’s a beautiful country with some amazing sights and fantastic wildlife.

Little did I know though that had I visited Tanzania recently I could have been fortunate and quite possibly have seen a frog named after some accountants.

Now I don’t mean “Fiona the Financial Controller” or “Andrew the Auditor”.

No, I mean a new frog that goes by the rather glorious if tricky to spell name of “nectophyrnoides deloittei”.

The “nectophyrnoides deloittei” species, or “the Deloitte Frog” as I’ll refer to her if we ever meet, was first identified back in 2005 but remained officially nameless until it was recently named after the Big 4 company Deloitte in recognition of their support for rainforest conservation work.

The firm has raised over £200,000 in the last year to help preserve the Rubeho Forest in Tanzania.

Heather Hancock, Managing Partner for Innovation and Brand at Deloitte, said “We wanted to demonstrate our commitment to the rainforest, to biodiversity and to the development needs of local people. And we wanted to learn more about how we could make a difference in remote and important parts of the world.”

All in all a very honourable project by Deloitte and congratulations to all those involved.
