Mission: Tree Walkers International (TWI) supports the protection, conservation, and restoration of wild amphibian populations through hands-on action both locally and internationally.
We foster personal relationships between people and nature by providing opportunities for citizens of all ages to become directly involved in global amphibian conservation. Through this involvement, our volunteers become part of a growing and passionate advocacy for the protection and restoration of wild amphibian populations and the environment on which they, and ultimately we, depend.
Scope and Geographic Focus: TWI promotes healthy wild populations of all amphibian species across the globe. Our programs allow people from all backgrounds and locations to take action to conserve the amphibians that matter to them most. For those involved in the care and keeping of amphibians in the wild, we encourage and advocate for a healthy and sustainable practice of the hobby.
Much of our effort involves developing tools and implementing technologies that allow for grass-roots participation and an exchange of ideas between individuals from various backgrounds, as well as providing funds for those developing novel methods of conservation and/or research.
