Global Amphibian Bioblitz: connecting citizen scientists and scientists
Amphibians around the world are disappearing. Recent estimates suggest that nearly one-third (32%) or about 2,000 species of this unique group of animals are threatened with extinction. With increasing land-use and climate change around the world, this trend is likely to worsen. To better understand and conserve these diverse and fascinating creatures, scientists urgently need information on where amphibians persist.
To collect this information, we need your help. AmphibiaWeb, the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, Center for Biological Diversity, the IUCN/SSC Amphibian Specialist Group, and Amphibian Ark have launched the Global Amphibian Bioblitz on the premier citizen science site, iNaturalist.
