Amphibian Experts Target Deadly Frog Fungus

The world's leading amphibian experts have come together and for the first time identified two major conservation initiatives to stop amphibians going extinct.

A new coalition of organizations, the Amphibian Survival Alliance, will be set up to focus on containing the spread of the amphibian chytrid fungus and protecting habitats which are home to amphibians that occur nowhere else in the world.

Amphibians are the most threatened group of animals in the world, with one in three of the 6,000 recognized amphibian species at risk of extinction.

The alliance, proposed at the first Amphibian Mini Summit, at the Zoological Society of London, brings together amphibian specialists working in the wild and those in zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens.
