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.

Each week a new Amazing Amphibian will be posted online for you to share on your website, social media network and through email. We hope that you will enjoy this initiative and help spread the word about just how Amazing Amphibians really are.

Amazing Amphibians is a collaborative effort between AmphibiaWeb, the IUCN Amphibian Specialist Group, iNaturalist,, ARKive, Amphibian Survival Alliance, Amphibian Ark, Synchronicity Earth, the IUCN SSC and all those that care about amphibians.

Amazing Amphibians was inspired by the widely popular Amazing Species weekly web initiative which is run by the Species Survival Commission and supported by the IUCN Global Species Programme to increase the awareness of our globally threatened species.
