You may have heard of the frog die-offs occurring worldwide, and the scientific wrangling over its cause(s). In response certain species that would go extinct are collected and housed in zoos and other locations, with the hope that they may someday be restored in their natural habitats.
The organization Amphibian Ark is a leader in this effort.
On a related front, scientists seek help from the public in contributing amphibian observations and photos to a Global Amphibian Blitz database You can help by adding photos of local amphibians--frogs and toads, salamanders and newts--along with dates and locations. So far 1325 species have been recorded. Can you add more?
