Conserving amphibians has never been more important. Around half of all amphibian species are declining, and the proportion threatened with extinction is thought to be over 40%, making amphibians the most threatened vertebrate group.

The intensifying plight of amphibians mirrors our own struggle, as we try to protect natural resources and bring about a sustainable future for all life on our shared planet.

We seek to preserve this variety, as part of healthy ecosystems, for generations to come.
