ASA Governance

The Amphibian Survival Alliance protects amphibians and their habitats through dynamic partnership worldwide. The Alliance is represented by organizations and institutions with an interest in conservation and amphibians.

Every four years the Alliance adopts strategies, programs and policies and elects a global Council and regional committees. The Council appoints a Chief Executive Officer to head a decentralized international Secretariat that co-ordinates and supports the alliance to achieve the ASA’s aims and objectives.


The Secretariat is the body of global and regional staff who coordinate and facilitate the ASA strategies, programs and policies. The Secretariat is responsible for the day to day running of the Alliance and meeting operational objectives.

Global Council

The Global Council consists of approximately 20 individuals representing ASA Partner Organizations in addition to a number of Honorary Members. The Global Council is responsible for developing the ASA strategy and prioritizing programmatic actions.
