The Amphibian Specialist Group and Amphibian Survival Alliance, world leaders in amphibian conservation, research and education
By focusing on amphibians, and the sites and habitats upon which they depend, the Amphibian Specialist Group and Amphibian Survival Alliance are working with our Partners to improve the quality of life for amphibians, for other wildlife, and for people around the world.
Amphibian Survival Alliance
The world’s largest partnership for amphibian conservation
Research helps lay the foundation from where the Alliance and our Partners around the world can develop effective education and conservation initiatives.
Education, whether it be professional capacity building or developing materials for school children, is often essential for conservation project success, a core element of the Alliance’s work.
Conservation is our end goal. We work with local and international partners to find the most effective and realistic ways to help conserve the most at risk amphibians around the world.
Having a Global Impact
Priority Species Supported
The Sierra de los Cuchumatanes in north-western Guatemala is the highest non-volcanic range in Central America, and a hotbed of unique and threatened amphibians including the Finca Chiblac Salamander, Long-limbed Salamander, Jackson’s Climbing Salamander and the Critically Endangered and beautiful Morelett’s Black-eyed Treefrog. An opportunity has arisen for a local NGO to acquire a 2000-acre property called Finca San Isidro to protect an important tract of humid subtropical forest and its unique inhabitants before it is cleared within the next year.
