The Amphibian Survival Alliance seeks to mobilise, support, and coordinate an active partnership to implement the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP) globally, maximising representation across ACAP themes, Amphibian Specialist Group regions, and in terms of investment and communications. We also support the actions of our Partners according to priority themes, and facilitate collaboration among Partners working on inter-related challenges.
The effectiveness of ASA as a conservation alliance is reliant upon the continual development and coordination of a strong and diverse global partnership to drive forward conservation actions for amphibians. ASA seeks to support this partnership to implement the Amphibian Conservation Action Plan (ACAP) by establishing priorities, stimulating investment, promoting communications, coordinating actions, and tracking progress.
ASA offers four different levels of partnership. Partners can fulfil the criteria of one of more of these levels, each providing a way for Partners to participate in, or promote, different key areas of our united Mission.
Thematic partners: ACAP comprises a series of crucial recommendations under the banners of different thematic Working Groups. We aim to divide these recommendations among our expanding partnership to help coordinate the implementation of ACAP globally across an engaged and collaborative alliance.
Country partners: Country Partners champion amphibian conservation activities in specific countries. We aim to recruit multiple Partners across every ASG region, developing collaborative networks of Partners at the country level wherever possible. Country Partners will be supported to build awareness, capacity, and actions for amphibians.
Investment partners: ASA seeks to stimulate investment in amphibian conservation actions to raise new resources for key amphibian conservation priorities. ASA channels funds where they can be most effective, for example through seed grants. Investment Partners facilitate the implementation of ACAP through helping to fund crucial conservation actions.
Communication partners: Raising awareness of amphibians to increase their profile is a key aspect of developing public and institutional will to protect them. We seek Communication Partners to help us get the message out effectively all over the world, including those involved in print and social media, radio, and television/motion picture productions.
