Amphibian Week 2020 - Postponed

“In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.”

Baba Dioum, 1968

We can not create lasting solutions for amphibians while members of our community’s voices are being silenced and until there is inclusive, equitable access to science, nature, and wildlife.

In an effort to amplify Black voices, the Amphibian Foundation and partners have decided to postpone our Amphibian Week content. Instead, we will highlight the important discussions such as #BlackAFinSTEM and #BlackInNature.

While AF will not be promoting Amphibian Week 2020 on our social media platforms, we recognize and value the work of our international partners and the activities organized to support the intended purpose of Amphibian Week. We appreciate your enthusiasm for joining us in the first, of many more to come, Amphibian Weeks.

The Amphibian Foundation, with many passionate national and international partners, have organized Amphibian Week! #AmphibianWeek is a celebration to promote the importance of amphibians and the partnerships formed to implement amphibian conservation actions to address the ongoing global amphibian crisis.

There are many ways to get involved, be sure to check out our partner pages for more ideas too, like Partners in Amphibian & Reptile Conservation!
