A Minnesota scientist in Costa Rica has discovered a new species of glass frog.

The United States has one of the oldest, best-established park systems in the world.

A 10-year plan to tackle the rapid extinction rate of Australian animals has been launched, with scientists from across the country collaborating on ways to deal with the biodiversity loss.

Scientists have discovered an incredible, shape-shifting frog species in the western Andean cloud forest of Ecuador, and it just may be the first ever amphibian that can rapidly change its skin tex

Scientists have found the number of animals moved to make way for building projects far outnumber science-led relocations to recover populations

It's a bit hard to tell exactly what this new species is. Discovered in Cambodia's Cadamom Mountains, the slimy, stringy creature could easily be mistaken for a big worm or even a snake.

A legless amphibian never before recorded by scientists has been discovered in the Cardamom Mountains, according to an international conservation NGO that helped to uncover the unusual creature.

Victoria's frogs are facing a conservation crisis according to biologists, who warn that some of the state's amphibians have "passed a tipping point", while others have become extinct.

Mass mortality events (MMEs), the rapid, catastrophic die-off of organisms, are an example of a rare event affecting natural populations. Individual reports of MMEs clearly demonstrate their ecological and evolutionary importance, yet our understanding of the general features characterizing such events is limited. Here, we conducted the first, to our knowledge, quantitative analysis of MMEs across the animal kingdom, and as such, we were able to explore novel patterns, trends, and features associated with MMEs.

Research shows that frogs in the region are increasingly under threat due to habitat destruction
