These two short videos on YouTube will bring you into this story.  (Or find them yourselves on YouTube by searching for “chytrid frog”.) The videos show terrific, pioneering work by Ron Gagliardo, herpetologist, Atlanta Botanical Garden; Joe Mendelson, herpetologist, Zoo Atlanta, and others.  The species rescues and breeding work is what Amphibian Ark will help fund.
