(CNN/MATCH.COM) – This Valentine's Day, there’s an unusual suitor on Match.com: a frog named "Romeo."

The 11-year-old Bolivian water frog is on a mission to save his species.

Match.com is teaming up with Global Wildlife Conservation and the Bolivian Amphibian Initiative in a fundraising campaign to help Romeo find his Juliet.

The online dating giant will match each donation made through Valentine's Day.

The goal is to raise $15,000 before Valentine's Day for 10 expeditions to places where Romeo’s species was once common.

Researchers said Romeo has been calling out for a mate for the past decade.

Romeo is quite serious about finding a mate since his profile’s relationship status reads, "Never Married," and "No Kids."

Underneath the desiring babies section, it reads: "Definitely."
