Amphibian Rescue Project

The Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute are working with Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Houston Zoo, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Zoo and Zoo New England to create captive colonies of highly endangered frogs that are being wiped out by a frog-killing fungus. We also lead a research program to find a cure for this deadly disease.

The Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project has built two frog facilities in Panama dedicated for caring for species that are likely extinct or nearly extinct in the wild. Please help us to save these beautiful creatures and donate today.
