The appearance of diseases such chytrid fungus and  Ranavirus have been linked to population declines of amphibians across the world.  Disease is spread by direct contact between amphibians or through contaminated water.  The Minnesota Zoo is working with partners at the University of Minnesota and the San Diego Zoological Society to document amphibian disease on Zoo site and better understand the impact of disease on amphibian health.
