Biodiversity is the backbone of all life on earth and Amazing Amphibians celebrates some of the amazing amphibians around us, interesting facts about the species, range and distribution maps, images/photos, while also promoting the conservation projects taking place to protect them and highlights the areas we still need to work on. Amazing Amphibians was inspired by the widely popular Amazing Species weekly web initiative which is run by the Species Survival Commission and supported by the IUCN Global Species Programme to increase the awareness of our globally threatened species.

Amazing Amphibians was a collaborative effort between AmphibiaWeb, the IUCN Amphibian Specialist Group, iNaturalist, ARKive, Amphibian Survival Alliance, Amphibian Ark, Synchronicity Earth, the IUCN SSC and all those that care about amphibians.
