The Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) is a partnership of organisations and groups working to implement research and conservation actions for amphibians.
These actions are guided by the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP), a road map for global amphibian conservation developed by expert Members of the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group (ASG). ASA promotes and coordinates the implementation of conservation actions for amphibians through an active, growing, engaged, committed, and collaborative partnership around the world.
ASA works with key coordinating bodies in global amphibian conservation – ASG and Amphibian Ark – to achieve a shared Vision: Amphibians thriving in nature.

What We Do
The Mission of the Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) is to conserve amphibians and their habitats through a strong, engaged, and collaborative global partnership. The ASA partnership is committed to the following aims:
- Preventing the extinction of amphibian species;
- Improving the conservation status of amphibian species;
- Protecting, improving, and enlarging areas of habitat important for amphibians;
- Providing national governmental and other decision-makers with conservation advice based on the best scientific studies available;
- Building broad partnerships with all stakeholders needed for effective conservation;
- Coordinating amphibian conservation actions worldwide through the ASA Secretariat;
- Helping, through amphibians, to conserve broader biodiversity and improve the quality of people’s lives;
- Educating people about the wonders of amphibians and their roles in maintaining healthy ecosystems, and inspiring appropriate behaviour change.
ASA is therefore keen to engage with any global partners working on ASAP amphibians.
