This holiday season, it’s possible to give the gift of conserving amphibians!

via Instagram

 Consider giving the gift of a membership in The Amphibian Foundation. Memberships directly support the conservation of imperiled amphibian species, like this Frosted Flatwoods Salamander, photographed last night peeking out from under the moss in the world’s only captive colony of this species. The Amphibian Foundation is working closely with state, federal and academic agencies to conserve this species and others that are in decline or threatened with extinction. Memberships of any amount can be accessed at the link in our bio and the funds support our conservation initiatives. Memberships of $100 or more also receive the coveted Amphibian Foundation logo (larval Flatwoods Salamander) care decal, and $250 or more will also receive an Amphibian Foundation t-shirt from TeePublic! Membership link is in the bio! Thank you Instagram Community for all your support!

Got my awesome Amphibian Foundation t-shirt!! It's a great design of a juvenile salamander and better yet, it helps this amazing conservation group with fundraising to accomplish their goals by the end of the year. Amphibians are in SERIOUS trouble and 40% of them are in danger of going extinct or have already been wiped out...more than any other group of animals! Go check out @frogsneedourhelp, follow them and get your t-shirt today! #amphibian #amphibians #frogsneedourhelp #frogs #frog #salamander #animals #tshirt #conservation #help #getinvolved #howyoucanhelp - #regrann

The Amphibian Foundation is participating in a month-long local artist exhibit at Kavarna in Decatur.

We have a mini #RibbitExhibit there with archival prints of #Ambystoma cingulatum and #Cruziohyla craspedopus. Also, a framed poster print of a Slimy Salamander #Plethodon glutinosus. Kavarna is where we held the first #RibbitExhibit last March with the work of 6 talented illustrators, showcasing their amphibian artwork and raising money for amphibian conservation. #SciArt #ScientificIllustration #AmphibianFoundation #AmphibianConservation #flatwoodssalamanders #flatwoodssalamander

Hi Everybody! I apologize for not having much time to post lately. We have been overwhelmed with setting up the new facilities at The Amphibian Foundation. It’s an exciting time, and we are building 2 indoor research labs for amphibians, as well as a huge outdoor breeding and assisted-metamorphosis facility. We still need help! We are $2500 short on our initial set-up costs and are reaching out to the online amphibian community to help raise the last piece, and get us fully set up and ready to raise and breed endangered amphibians. Become a Member of The Amphibian Foundation! Or Give the Gift of Membership! Memberships are available in any amount and are described here. Your contributions go directly to The Amphibian Foundation. Purchase Amphibian Foundation merchandise! Proceeds go directly to The Amphibian Foundation. All of our programs, initiatives and research, as well as ways to get involved are described on our website: #amphibianfoundation #amphibianconservation #racingextinction #endextinction #frogsneedourhelp #frogs #salamanders #conservation
