Saving amphibians
from extinction

Preventing a Catastrophe
for amphibians worldwide

In Crisis

Amphibians are the most threatened vertebrate group in the world with over 40% of all known species believed to be threatened with extinction.

They are also vital to planet Earth - pivotal members of their natural communities, both as predators and prey, and are hugely important in maintaining healthy forests and wetlands.

Their Threat...

Habitat loss is the primary threat for amphibians globally. In addition, amphibians are being decimated by the deadly fungal disease chytridiomycosis or chytrid.
