PARC is a diverse, comprehensive partnership dedicated to the conservation of reptiles, amphibians, and their habitats.


The USGS Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative studies national amphibian declines to determine how severe they are, their causes, and what we can do to stop them.


IUCN/SSC's Amphibian Specialist Group strives to conserve biological diversity by stimulating, developing, and executing practical programs to conserve amphibians and their habitats around the world.


The Amphibian Ark is a joint effort of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the IUCN/SSC Conservation Breeding Specialist Group, and the IUCN/SSC Amphibian Specialist Group to ensure the global survival of amphibians.


The AZA helps to breed amphibians for reintroduction, provides educational resources and financial support, and promotes amphibian conservation.
