Amphibian Week 2024

Amphibian Week was started in 2020 by the Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) and partners as a way to increase awareness about amphibians and to celebrate all things amphibian. It is celebrated annually the first full week of May.

Mark your calendars for our Amphibian Week 2024 celebration! This year’s theme will be Extreme Athletes: Amphibian Edition. We’ll celebrate May 5-11th, 2024.
