“In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.”
Baba Dioum, 1968
We can not create lasting solutions for amphibians while members of our community’s voices are being silenced and until there is inclusive, equitable access to science, nature, and wildlife.
In an effort to amplify Black voices, the Amphibian Foundation and partners have decided to postpone our Amphibian Week content. Instead, we will highlight the important discussions such as #BlackAFinSTEM and #BlackInNature.
While AF will not be promoting Amphibian Week 2020 on our social media platforms, we recognize and value the work of our international partners and the activities organized to support the intended purpose of Amphibian Week. We appreciate your enthusiasm for joining us in the first, of many more to come, Amphibian Weeks.
