The Amphibian RLA Team
The Amphibian Red List Authority (ARLA) is comprised a Global Coordinator, Regional Coordinators, Regional Working Groups, and Global and Regional Programme Officers, all of whom are ASG members, as well as volunteers and interns who may apply to become ASG members.
For more information on our structure and functioning, please see the ARLA 2017-2020 Guidance Document v1.

Volunteers and interns typically join the ARLA for a short period of time of a minimum of 3 months full-time or six-months part time, reporting to the Global or Regional Coordinator or Programme Officers. Some individuals volunteer for many years, some come back after a hiatus, some help generally across tasks, while others develop discreet projects. Overall, volunteers and interns are critical to updating assessments, developing novel tools (e.g. the Amphibian Assessment Forum), conducting analyses, and contributing much energy and innovation to the red listing process. Interns are often early-career biologists who commit to a project that qualifies them as new ASG members.
