We have developed two strategies:
Strategy One (Species-Specific Approach): Find probiotics for critically-endangered species in Madagascar, such as Mantella aurantiaca. These probiotics can be administered by individual probiotics baths.
Strategy Two (Community-based Approach): Find probiotics that can protect amphibian communities by treating breeding sites where amphibians congregate.
** We stress that bioaugmentation approaches must use bacteria found on amphibian in the local environment to improve success and minimize biosafety concerns.
