Over 900 species added to endangered list during past year via @mongabay

A drastic population decline, estimated to be more than 80% over the last ten years, has been inferred from the apparent disappearance of most of the population of Atelopus patazensis. Only two individuals of this species were located in extensive surveys in 2010. This decline in Atelopus patazensis might be due to chytridiomycosis and/or a combination of mining activities and the chytrid fungus. More research on this Critically Endangered species’ population status, natural history and threats are urgently needed to ensure that proper conservation measures can be put in place.
