Summary:  

The Alliance for Zero extinction initiative by members of the BP Conservation Award partnership have identfied over 26 sites of vital importance to CR and EN amphibians in Colombia. Seventeen of those sites are wholly unprotected or only partially protected and almost all sites lack recent data on the status of endangered amphibians. We shall mount an intensive effort to survey at 4 sites so as to establish the status of key species, their ecological requirements, and evaluate threats at each site. Obtaining high priority data with standardised methods will serve as a crucial base for future monitorig and guide the immediate implementation of conservation programs for this highly senstive and charismatic group.
