The Amphibian Foundation has worked with and trained many amazing Volunteers and Research Assistants over the years. Our programs and initiatives are dependent upon these important relationships. Whether you are interested in husbandry and helping us take care of the over 500 reptiles and amphibians in our education collection, rearing endangered species of amphibian for conservation programs, teaching Critter Camp or helping us post amphibian conservation advancements on social media, there are many opportunities to get involved with the Amphibian Foundation and saving amphibians! Volunteer engagement that inspires conservation action.
Our two main mechanisms for getting involved at AF are through a Volunteer position in our Collections Team (about 40 people, mostly Volunteers) and through our Conservation Research Bridge Program, which mentors students as Research Assistants in a 1-3 semester, immersive research training program.
If our volunteers and assistants are 1) taught work ethics such as teamwork and leadership skills; 2) provided with training in presentation and interpretive skills; 3) taught skills in working with animals and their environment; and 4) exposed to career options in education, conservation, and science fields, then they will develop core conservation values, be stewards of the environment, and possess job and presentation skills to become positive and productive members of society.
