Why are we doing this?

Amphibians (frogs and newts) around the world are in trouble.

Almost a third of known amphibians are declining or are extinct. This is due to a combination of habitat loss, disease, pollution and climate change.

In Northern Ireland, we don't know what impact, if any, these issues have had. We know the number of ponds available for frogs and newts has fallen. Yet, we don’t know what effect this has had on frog and newt populations.

By taking part in "What's In Your Pond?" you will help us begin to understand what, if anything, is happening to our local frogs and newts.
