ASA works to stimulate new investment in amphibian conservation actions through supporting diverse fundraising activities and directing funds strategically throughout the partnership.

  • The Amphibian Fund: Set up to help secure much-needed funding for amphibian species conservation around the world, this Fund supports conservation for the most threatened vertebrate group. To learn more, please visit the Synchronicity Earth website.

  • Funding Opportunities: Please see the table below for funding opportunities that are available at the organization level. For opportunities at the individual level, please visit the Amphibian Specialist Group’s funding webpage.

  • ASA Seed Grants: ASA Seed Grants promote the development of amphibian conservation projects, particularly linked to our priorities of habitat conservation, mitigating emerging infectious diseases, and communication. ASA Seed Grants are awarded in memory of Dr George B. Rabb (1930-2017), a great supporter of amphibians and all those who care for them. Details coming soon!

  • Future Leaders of Amphibian Conservation Award: This program is an annual award to a number of early career conservationists from around the world who have been identified as Future Leaders of Amphibian Conservation. We are looking for individuals in the early stages of their career who have evidence of contributing to successful conservation initiatives in the past, and who wish to conduct or continue with a particular conservation project or research agenda that will directly improve the survival of amphibians in the wild. We are particularly keen to attract applications from delegates in developing countries. Click here to learn more.
