Amazing Amphibians is an initiative born out of a joint desire to share the incredible diversity of amphibians with the world. Biodiversity is the backbone of all life on earth and through this initiative we hope to celebrate some of the amazing amphibians around us, promote the fantastic work taking place to protect them and highlight the areas we still need to work on.
