Restoring amphibian populations in chytrid-impacted landscapes

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to address an outstanding question in wildlife disease ecology: how we can enable susceptible amphibian species to persist in the face of the chytrid pathogen, which has devastated amphibian biodiversity globally. We will experimentally trial two highly promising interventions – immunising animals and creating disease refugia through simple habitat manipulations – for which proof-of-concept has been demonstrated in the laboratory but that have not been trialled in the field. If successful, our project will pave the way for these interventions to be widely used to halt declines and restore amphibian biodiversity in landscapes currently impacted by chytrid.
