Number of recorded amphibian species leaps to 7,000!

Despite a global decline in the number of amphibians over the past 25 years, the number of species has skyrocketed.

3,000 new species have been discovered, bringing the total number of known species to 7,000—an increase of nearly 75 percent.

“In the middle of all the doom and gloom we hear about amphibians, we’re finding them at a faster rate,” says David
Wake, professor emeritus of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and one of the first to
raise the alarm about declining amphibian populations. “In many parts of the world, amphibians are doing very well, and
there are certainly many yet to be discovered.”
