The Amphibian Survival Alliance is the world’s largest collaborative effort dedicated to amphibian conservation, research and education. From habitat protection to disease research, policy guidance to education program development, the Alliance builds real solutions by bringing together governments, industry, non-profits, citizens and others to address the leading threats to amphibians.
We envision a world in which the extinction of known threatened species of amphibians has been prevented and their conservation status, particularly of those most in decline, has been improved and sustained.
In 2010 nearly 200 countries that support the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) agreed on 20 targets to save biodiversity and enhance its benefits for people, and committed to meet them by 2020. The Alliance´s vision is fully aligned with the target that refers specifically to threatened species, and the Alliance is therefore well positioned to help the CBD Parties meet their commitment to saving biodiversity.
By focusing on amphibians, and the sites and habitats upon which they depend, the Alliance is working to improve the quality of life for amphibians, for other wildlife (biodiversity), and for people around the world.
