National Chytrid Survey - 2011:

The ARG UK and its county groups are providing the people power to go and collect, sample over 6,000 amphibians this spring and early summer. The volunteer army is being mobilised to help sample amphibians across the UK for a deadly killer fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. The fungus is known from the UK and was found during the previous survey in 2008. The hard work by volunteers goes to show how important these partnerships can work to help scientists learn more about the issues facing the UK's herpetofauna (amphibians & reptiles).
