Amphibian Ark Program Officer Kevin Zippel addressed the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival in October, making the case for support of the campaign. This video excerpt shows Kevin talking about the importance of this animal class, and dropping some disturbing statistics.

“Just within the past few decades, well over 100 (species) have already gone extinct. This is far more severe than what we’ve seen with other vertebrate groups, and for every bird or mammal species that is threatened with extinction, there are two to three amphibian species on the verge.”
