Amphibian Rescue Project

panamanian golden frog on branch

Since 1980 more than 120 species of amphibians have gone extinct. As part of the Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project, researchers and scientists at the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute are working with Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Houston Zoo, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and Zoo New England to create captive colonies of highly endangered frogs that are being wiped out by a frog-killing fungus. 

Help us save these beautiful creatures by donating today. Learn more about our groundbreaking work with amphibians at the Center for Species Survival.
