We received an MBZ Conservation Grant to fund our first trip and pilot study on the anti-Bd skin bacteria of frogs in Madagascar! In fact, we received one of two Board Special Awards from MBZ for our proposal. We traveled to Madagascar in mid-August to begin this study. We thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm for our project. Check out our Facebook page as we provide updates on our trip and blogposts about our work from Madagascar!
Welcome to frogprobiotics.org! This site is designed to highlight our project to find effective probiotics for Malagasy amphibians in order to develop a proactive conservation response for the impending arrival of the deadly amphibian pathogen, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, in Madagascar. Check out the Madagascar tab to learn more. We provide information for donors who want to support our effort to protect frogs in Madagascar. For more information about this project and how to donate please contact: Reid Harris and Molly Bletz.
