1. Please provide a brief summary of your video and research.

In recent years many researchers have shown that humanity is not living within our natural limits. In fact humans are consuming the Earth’s resources at an increasingly unsustainable rate. One substantial piece of evidence to support this is the rise of habitat destruction, pollution and emerging diseases, which affects lives worldwide. Given the current critical global decline in amphibians, it is almost impossible to predict what is next for the taxa. Scientific studies focused in diseases have increased greatly in the last decade, trying to find solutions to the problem. Nevertheless a much great effort from all disciplines, from all generation and cultures around the world can help minimise their decline. Amphibians need to be targeted because there is not a single cause of decline but rather the interaction of several causes. Raising awareness that will promote local communities to change their attitude towards the environment and their approach towards amphibians, can reduce some of these causes, for example pollution, habitat destruction, climate change, diseases. Teaching people about the consequences of this decline can change people’s perception on amphibian taxa. The future of amphibian populations depends upon the attitude of today’s young people, which is why they will be targeted in my research.
