Stop the Killing of America's Highly Imperiled Reptiles and Amphibians

Frogs, turtles, salamanders and snakes are being pushed to the brink of extinction by pesticides, habitat destruction, global warming and disease.

If we don't act fast, 1 in every 3 species of frogs, toads and salamanders could disappear in our lifetime.

Incredibly, many of the most vulnerable species lack the lifesaving protection granted by the Endangered Species Act. That's why the Center for Biological Diversity is racing against time to save these extraordinary amphibians and reptiles from extinction, and we need your help.

We already took the bold step of hiring the country's first and only lawyer dedicated to saving reptiles and amphibians – and just this year we've already won 27 million acres of protected habitat for endangered leatherback sea turtles. Now, we've launched an ambitious new campaign exclusively devoted to saving America's least-protected reptiles and amphibians.

With your generous gift today, we'll take things to the next level in 2012: outlawing deadly rattlesnake "roundups," cracking down on the exportation of freshwater turtles, and filing a massive Endangered Species Act petition to seek federal protection for more than 50 frogs, salamanders, toads, lizards and snakes.
