Experts at SD Zoo Convention Plan Battle Against Evil Fungus

Experts are trying to find ways to combat a deadly fungus that is threatening amphibian populations around the world.

Twenty-five of the world's leading amphibian veterinarians, disease researchers and animal care specialists convened this week at the San Diego Zoo to write a definitive conservation manual to combat the spread of chytrid fungus.

The microscopic fungus attaches to the animal and thickens its skin, making it more difficult to absorb the water they need.
