Amphibians are the most threatened and overlooked vertebrate group in the world with over 40% of all known species believed to be threatened with extinction. They are vital to planet Earth – pivotal members of their natural communities, both as predators and prey, and hugely important in maintaining healthy forests and wetlands.
A rescue operation, headed by Durrell has kicked into action in order to prevent a catastrophe for Amphibians worldwide. By 2020 we will secure the survival of amphibian species at ten sites across four of the world’s highest priority regions for amphibian conservation, but we need your help. Join us and hear from experts from three of these sites and hear how they are working to save some of the world’s most fascinating creatures.
This event is free to all members of Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust with a suggested donation of £20 for all non members and guests. Thank you for your support.
