Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) and Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG): Inviting Applications to support immediate action to avert the threats that are driving our planet’s wildlife towards extinction.

Donor Name:  Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) and Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG)
Funding name: The Leapfrog Conservation Fund

Funding brief:  The Leapfrog Conservation Fund was founded by Rainforest Trust, Global Wildlife Conservation and the Andrew Sabin Family Foundation to support immediate action to avert the threats that are driving our planet’s wildlife towards extinction. The Fund supports the creation of new reserves for important amphibian habitat, or the expansion of existing reserves. They receive a lot of requests and proposals for surveys, monitoring or research – please note that this fund does not support these activities unless they are one component within the creation of a new reserve for amphibians. The Amphibian Survival Alliance is currently developing and screening projects for support on a rolling basis.

The Leapfrog Conservation Fund supports the strategic protection of critical amphibian habitat through local partners. Land purchase is the primary action supported by the fund; however, other actions that result in protection of critical habitat for amphibians will be considered if these actions are deemed more effective.

Priority is given to the protection of habitat supporting Endangered and Critically Endangered amphibian species. New species will be eligible if they are clear candidates for threatened status on the Red List. If matching funds are secured this will significantly increase the likelihood of support.

Proposals must clearly demonstrate how the proposed actions will be implemented by a local partner and how the protected area will be managed over the long-term. High quality maps in Google Earth, and Lat/Long coordinates for the proposed project site are a requirement.

Deadline: The Amphibian Survival Alliance is currently developing and screening projects for support on a rolling basis.
