Meet the Bridge Program Faculty & Staff

The Conservation Research Bridge Program (Bridge) at the Amphibian Foundation is the 'tip of the spear' for our conservation efforts, and this is the team that gets things done for wild amphibians at AF. Designed as a 'Gap-year' program, the Bridge advances the science of amphibian conservation through a career-building, mentored research program which provides a multitude of unparalleled and unique opportunities in the lab and in the field, working with endangered species, in a supportive scientific environment.
