Near to my heart

Well, this is certainly a topic very close to my heart, amphibians are going extinct, and since I studied reptiles as an undergraduate and still have quite a fascination with them. A high extinction rate in these animals is indicative of toxins which could affect other species even if many of them did not depend upon amphibians for survival. I would absolutely love to see a herpetarium devoted to breeding the thousands of amphibian species in captivity to preserve as much biodiversity as possible. Is anyone interested in undertaking a task of this magnitude?
