Habitat degradation is one of the main problems in contemporary nature conservation. Even sites inhabited by Endangered species are completely destroyed by human activities (construction, mining etc.), invasion of alien species (mink, stone moroko) or by outbreaks of diseases (chytridiomycosis, crayfish plague). In such cases, collection of the animals and their temporary keeping in captivity provides these species additional time until the habitat is restored, or a proper alternative is found.
Amphibian Survival Alliance parter NaturaServis Ltd. has designed and tested tanks for the temporary keeping of wild reptiles, amphibians and other organisms (aquatic plants, freshwater mussels, crayfish etc.).
