The Amphibian Conservation Fund

Country/Region: Worldwide
Partner: Synchronicity Earth

The second Global Amphibian Assessment has just been published in the journal Nature, analysing two decades’ worth of data from around the world, evaluating the extinction risk of 8’011 amphibian species for the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species. As many as 222 amphibian species could already have gone extinct, and 2’873 are in danger of extinction.

The data in the second Global Amphibian Assessment provides a guide for how action for amphibians can be targeted and effective and will inform the activities and priorities of the Amphibian Conservation Fund, a philanthropic initiative started by Synchronicity Earth in 2021. The Fund has since been joined by Fondation Segré, Oak Foundation, another Geneva-based foundation and the BAND Foundation to support the conservation of threatened amphibians globally.
