WWB-Amphibians-in-Decline

The Wildlife Without Borders- Amphibians in Decline program will fund projects that conserve the world’s rapidly declining amphibian species.

Species eligible for funding are those frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians that face a very high risk of extinction in the immediate future.



Species should meet the criteria to be listed as “Critically Endangered” or “Endangered” on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List.

Species listed as “Data Deficient” on the IUCN Red List are also eligible if the applicant can provide information that suggests a similar urgency for conservation action.

Species listed as “Extinct in Wild” are eligible if the applicant is proposing a reintroduction attempt.

To the extent that it provides clear, direct support for the program objectives above, proposed work may also relate to climate change adaptation, mitigation, and education.

The following species are NOT eligible for funding:
Species with natural habitat range located within the United States, territories of the United States, Canada, and the high income economies of Europe; Non-amphibian species.

The goal of this grants program is to reduce threats to highly endangered amphibians in their natural habitat.

Proposals should identify specific conservation actions that have a high likelihood of creating durable benefits.

Project activities that emphasize data collection and status assessment should describe a direct link to management action, and explain how lack of information has been a key limiting factor for management action in the past.

Proposals that do not identify how actions will reduce threats, or do not demonstrate a strong link between data collection and management action, are not eligible for consideration.

Proposed project work should occur within the species range, or, if work is to be conducted outside of the range, the proposal should show a clear relevance to its conservation.

Proposals that emphasize ex-situ conservation and captive management are not eligible for consideration.
