Here are nine of the most endangered species of amphibians. Eight of the species are still being studied or bred in the Center for Conservation and Research at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium. One success, the eastern hellbender, has been released to the wild, although some of them are on exhibit at the zoo.
The “at zoo” numbers are only for the Omaha zoo. The “in the wild” numbers are estimates from scientific counts.
