MMU in collaboration with Chester Zoo are excited to announce ACRS returns to Manchester in Spring 2019!


ACRS is the only international symposium dedicated specifically to the sharing of research and strategies to empower the future of amphibian conservation. ACRS helps to bring together amphibian conservationists and researchers from around the world to gain experience, learn new ideas and make contacts. With a strong focus on early career conservation and research practitioners, ACRS is helping to build a future for global amphibian conservation efforts.

Since originally being held at the University of Manchester in 2012, ACRS has subsequently been hosted by the Natural History Museum London (2013), Zoological Society of London (2014), University of Cambridge (2015), North-West University in South Africa (2016) and the University of Kent (2017).


ACRS brings together amphibian conservation researchers from all fields and backgrounds, including academics, veterinarians, field biologists and members of the zoo community. The two-day meetings provide a platform to present a wide array of talks and posters covering evidence-based approaches and management strategies that promote amphibian conservation.


Previous topics have covered disease, ecotoxicology, genetics, ex situ husbandry, captive breeding, reintroduction programs, surveying techniques, habitat utilisation, in situ programs, amphibian trade and urban ecology.
