IMPORTANT REMINDER! If you ever see a sick or dead #salamander please snap a photo & add it to my disease surveillance page on @inaturalist at… A novel #chytrid fungus is attacking #salamanders & you can help! #CitizenScience #CommunityScience #salamanders
Just realized I hashtagged salamanders 50 times in the post above. Sorry! Chytrid fungus gets me all fired up!
And just to be clear, the photos you upload do NOT necessarily mean that the animals had #chytrid fungus. Lots of things cause amphibians to die. But we have *so* little info about what a "normal" amount of dead #salamanders looks like. Your records have sparked field responses!
If you're interested to know more about the source of this amphibian extinction crisis, here's a presentation I gave for the @OIEAnimalHealth: #ScienceTwitter #chytrid #OneHealth

Since the #WildlifeTrade and #COVIDー19 are back in the news, might be a good time to share my @NatGeo story again:… #Science #OneHealth @InsideNatGeo
This is what I want people to understand about the #WildlifeTrade and spread of diseases, from my personal experiences. We need to start fixing this *now*, before the next #wildlife or human pandemic:… via @NatGeo #ScienceTwitter #SciComm #OneHealth Image
The reason I'm so passionate about this #WildlifeTrade issue is b/c I truly believe solutions already exist but the tools are spread across different agencies. What can be done? I'd love to help build a collaboration between @CDCgov, @USFWS, & @USDA as a place to start #OneHealth

With #Halloween approaching, what haunts you? I often worry about how quickly #animals are going extinct, and especially #frogs. Here's some of the ways your support can help me prevent then from becoming #environmental ghosts: #FridayFeeling #FrogFriday
Did you know? Many baby #frogs (tadpoles) act as “river lawn mowers” by grazing on algae and plant material that falls into rivers. Their presence helps protect clean water which people and #wildlife both depend on. #FrogFriday
Also, #frogs may help control the spread of human #diseases spread by #insects, like #malaria, dengue & Zika. The tadpoles of some frog species are carnivorous & kill mosquito eggs & larvae. Keeping frogs healthy can help keep people healthy too #OneHealth
