Amphibian declines at local and global scales have been documented for decades and they seem to be ongoing. Conservationist would like to halt declines and undertake actions which lead to the recovery of populations. How can scientific research contribute to this goal? I argue that research in conservation biology should shift from describing problems towards solving problems.
