More than one third of amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Ex situ captive breeding programmes have been set up for a number of amphibian species with mixed success and considerable financial investment. It is time that we step back and evaluate the roles of the modern zoo in such programmes and decide whether or not ex situ conservation breeding programmes are really worth the risk and investment.
