Amphibian Ark and the 2008 Year of the Frog Campaign

Amphibian Ark and the 2008 Year of the Frog Campaign The world's amphibians are disappearing. More than 100 species may have already gone Extinct and thousands more are threatened with extinction. Many of the threatened species cannot be safeguarded in the wild and require ex situ management if they are to persist. The Amphibian Ark (AArk) draws together diverse stakeholders to save select species until in situ threats can be mitigated. AArk work includes species prioritization, husbandry training, capacity building, fostering partnerships, fundraising and education. A campaign entitled 2008 Year of the Frog is helping to raise awareness among governments, media, educators and the general public, and to support a capital campaign to fund amphibian conservation programmes worldwide. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Zoo Yearbook Wiley

Abstract

The world's amphibians are disappearing. More than 100 species may have already gone Extinct and thousands more are threatened with extinction. Many of the threatened species cannot be safeguarded in the wild and require ex situ management if they are to persist. The Amphibian Ark (AArk) draws together diverse stakeholders to save select species until in situ threats can be mitigated. AArk work includes species prioritization, husbandry training, capacity building, fostering partnerships, fundraising and education. A campaign entitled 2008 Year of the Frog is helping to raise awareness among governments, media, educators and the general public, and to support a capital campaign to fund amphibian conservation programmes worldwide.
