PARC- Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation
The PARC Disease Task Team has created a system for people in the U.S. and Canada to report an incident of sick, dying, or multiple dead amphibians or reptiles. Simply send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT: Include in your email
- Your name and e-mail address (for any follow-up questions)
- What you saw
- Where it was (city, state and other location information, e.g., name of park or forest)
- What types of animals were involved (species [if you are sure of the identification] and life stages observed [eggs, larvae, subadults, adults])
- Is it ongoing (some sick-looking animals that are alive? or only dead or decayed animals observed?)
- Any photos or other relevant information
Sampling Bd or Bsal in the field? Journal requesting your data be archived?
Contribute your data to the Disease Portal! Find out more.
A repository for biologists who are sampling Bd and Bsal. We aim to facilitate and promote collaboration in the scientific community to understand and combat chytridiomycosis. Aggregating field data on disease is the first step in the combatting amphibian declines.
