Saving Frogs in Madagascar - Part 2

  • Amphibians
  • Frogs and toads
  • Conservation in the zoo
  • Mascarenes and Madagascar

There is a strong and firm commitment by the European Association of Zoo and Aquaria (EAZA) to support conservation programmes in Madagascar and Chester Zoo is keen to take a key role being active in amphibian conservation in the island.

This is going to be part of our global conservation plan for Amphibian Conservation here at Chester Zoo as one of our Field Programmes.

The approach to Amphibian Conservation will be multi-faceted and capacity building in terms of training is essential to start seeing in-country initiatives develop in the medium/long term.
