At least two well-known populations of Darwin’s blackish toad have become extinct; a third one is probably extinct. The remnant populations face a combination of threats, including habitat loss by forestry, invasive woody species, and quarries; overgrazing and trampling by livestock; chytrid fungus; and desiccation caused by climate change. This project will achieve Darwin's blackish toad's first practical conservation tools, connecting the current populations and increasing its viability.
