Advancing  Amphibian Conservation in Africa

As habitats are transformed and climate change impacts become increasingly realised, Africa’s amphibians are at increased risk of extinction. These flagships for freshwater health, habitat integrity and diversity, are often the last to be considered in conservation planning. Globally, 40.7% are threatened. Scaling up conservation action for amphibians has never been more critical. 

Anura Africa is committed to advancing amphibian conservation in southern Africa and across the continent, by identifying needs and knowledge gaps, bolstering research capacity, and implementing conservation actions informed by evidence. We support sustainable landscape-level habitat protection by facilitating natural resource management practices aimed at ensuring the conservation of critical amphibian habitat. Our approach is guided by global amphibian conservation priorities, with a focus on enhancing ecosystem resilience to safeguard species adaptation. Integral to our mission is supporting mindset shifts towards appreciation for African amphibian conservation through skills transfer, citizen science, partnerships, improving awareness and strengthening local capacity.
