AF's success is dependent on our dedicated, talented, and diverse partnerships. We are amphibiously grateful for the commitment our partners share towards the slimy underdogs. 

 


Foundational Partners


US Fish and Wildlife Service

US Fish and Wildlife Service

Flatwoods Salamander Recovery Team leader | We have worked with USFWS since 2012 on a recovery plan for the imperiled flatwoods salamanders - Ambystoma cingulatum and A. bishopi. Most recently, we are working with the service on the captive breeding and experimental release of Gopher Frogs, Rana capito.

Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Flatwoods Salamander Recovery Team member | We have partnered with GA DNR since 2009 on Gopher Frog, Flatwoods Salamander, and other native amphibian initiatives. We also work with them on outreach projects and amphibian monitoring in the state.

US Geological Survey

US Geological Survey

Flatwoods Salamander Recovery Team member | We have partnered with USGS for two major initiatives. The first was in 2003 for a Critical Ecosystems project modeling amphibian communities in Everglades National Park, FL and most recently on the recovery plan for flatwoods salamanders. 

Florida Fish and Wildlife

Florida Fish and Wildlife

Flatwoods Salamander Recovery Team member | We work with FFWCC at the Florida sites for Ambystoma cingulatum, the Frosted Flatwoods Salamander, mostly with field sampling of larvae at St Marks Wildlife Refuge and Appalachicola National Forest. We also collaborate on the Striped Newt Repatriation Program.

The Turner Foundation

The Turner Foundation

The Turner Foundation has been a huge supporter of our work, particularly with the recovery of the federally listed Frosted Flatwoods Salamander. The Turner Foundation's support enabled us to build the Flatwoods Salamander Lab and the Amphibian Research and Conservation Center.

Turner Endangered Species Fund

Turner Endangered Species Fund

We are partnering with the Turner Endangered Species fund on a comprehensive amphibian study of the Avalon property in north Florida, as well as habitat restoration work for the conservation of four target imperiled amphibian species from that region: Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders, Gopher Frogs, Striped Newts, and Ornate Chorus Frogs.

Andrew Sabin Family Foundation

Andrew Sabin Family Foundation

Andy Sabin and the ASFF have been a important partner in their support of the construction of the Amphibian Research and Conservation Center. The A.R.C.C. is a completely unique conservation tool, located at the Amphibian Foundation for one purpose: the captive propagation of imperiled North American amphibians. It wouldn't have been possible without the contributions of the ASFF.

Southern Conservation Partners

Southern Conservation Partners

Southern Conservation Partners helps local initiatives and communities across the southern U.S. to save, restore, and enhance premier environmental resources and natural heritage assets. We promote innovative collaborations designed to conserve and honor the South's natural heritage and ecological health. SCP is the fiscal sponsor of the Amphibian Foundation.
