The Amphibian Foundation strongly believes that we need everyone involved in conservation
to save the world’s amphibians. As official partners with the federal Diversity Joint Venture for Conservation Careers
and the national Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion Task Team
, we strive to create an inclusive environment for anyone who wishes to participate in AF efforts. We are proud to work with passionate people from various backgrounds and experiences who want to make a difference for this often overlooked group of animals — a group which is disappearing right before our eyes.
Although it goes without saying, we will say it here — we welcome people of all backgrounds, skills, and perspectives who are dedicated to the conservation of amphibians, wildlife, and the environment. We provide many opportunities for all to gain experience, training, and education in this field. Through these programs, we aim to further create a diverse network of environmental stewards. We also aim to improve cultural competency, increase inclusion, engage the widest audience possible, and recruit partners, staff, volunteers, and interns with different social and cultural characteristics, including but not limited to race, color, ethnic heritage, class, religion, geography, gender identity, orientation, mental/physical ability, and age.

Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee at the Amphibian Foundation
To better serve our local and global communities in our mission of connecting individuals, communities, and organizations in order to create and implement lasting solutions to the global amphibian extinction crisis
, we have assembled a Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee
(JEDI Comm) and associated JEDI Fund
to increase inclusivity of underserved and under-represented groups in science, nature, and conservation. The JEDI Fund provides scholarships to Amphibian Foundation educational programs and training for ages 3 and up, and the JEDI Committee works to advance the inclusivity of underserved and under-represented groups in science.
