THE AMPHIBIAN SURVIVAL ALLIANCE
The Amphibian Survival Alliance is the world’s largest collaborative effort dedicated to amphibian conservation, research and education. From habitat protection to disease research, policy guidance to education program development, the Alliance builds real solutions by bringing together governments, industry, non-profits, citizens and others to address the leading threats to amphibians.
Healthy Planet, Healthy Amphibians
We envision a world in which the extinction of known threatened species of amphibians has been prevented and their conservation status, particularly of those most in decline, has been improved and sustained.
In 2010 nearly 200 countries that support the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) agreed on 20 targets to save biodiversity and enhance its benefits for people, and committed to meet them by 2020. The Alliance´s vision is fully aligned with the target that refers specifically to threatened species, and the Alliance is therefore well positioned to help the CBD Parties meet their commitment to saving biodiversity.
By focusing on amphibians, and the sites and habitats upon which they depend, the Alliance is working to improve the quality of life for amphibians, for other wildlife (biodiversity), and for people around the world.
As a global Alliance we aim to:
- Prevent the extinction of any amphibian species.
- Coordinate amphibian conservation actions across the world.
- Maintain and, where possible, improve the conservation status of all amphibian species.
- Conserve and, where appropriate, improve and enlarge areas of habitat important for amphibians.
- Build broad partnerships engaging all stakeholders needed for effective conservation.
- Provide decision makers with conservation advice based on the best scientific studies available.
- Help, through amphibians, to conserve broader biodiversity and to improve the quality of people’s lives.
- Educate and inspire people to the wonders of amphibians and their role in maintaining healthy ecosystems.
