Thank you for your interest in donating to the Amphibian Foundation.

100% of donations we receive support conservation initiatives for some of the most imperiled amphibians on earth.



Since its founding in 2016, the Atlanta-based Amphibian Foundation (AF) has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the conservation and protection of some of the nation’s most imperiled species. These include species listed under the Endangered Species Act, such as the Frosted Flatwoods Salamander, Ambystoma cingulatum. The formation of AF was originally in response to a decrease in attention and funding from conservation groups, as well as state and federal sources. Our direct partners at these agencies — the folks who asked for our help to begin with — are some of the most dedicated individuals and partners out there. While we work closely with these critical partners to identify species and populations of amphibians in peril, they are typically unable to leverage these grave conservation concerns with their respective agencies into meaningful financial support for protecting these sensitive animals. The aforementioned Frosted Flatwoods Salamander, for example, has declined in population by 90% since it was first listed under the Endangered Species Act for protection. Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders are now facing an imminent extinction event, and less than a fifth of the funding for this project has come from the government. The balance is provided by AF through our educational programs, and concerned folks like you.

As agencies further deprioritize amphibians and their conservation (including species listed under the Endangered Species Act), it is becoming even more essential that groups like the Amphibian Foundation have the resources they need to act quickly and sustainably for the protection of our amphibians.

In 2023, we introduced our Releasing Imperiled Batrachians Back Into The Swamps (R.I.B.B.I.T.S.) initiative, to address this increasing concern. R.I.B.B.I.T.S. specifically targets species with insufficient or no financial support. As we continue to work with our partners to identify available grants and funding opportunities, species which have still not received support will be highlighted that year in our RIBBITS initiative — so that we can work with the greater amphibian community (including YOU) to help raise awareness and necessary resources. We can’t do it alone.

Fun Fact: Batrachian is an old-timey term for 'limbed amphibian' — sorry, caecilians.
