Amphibians in Germany, documentary

This 16 March 2019 video says about itself:

Into the Forest: Amphibian Nature Documentary

Journey for 90 days into a mysterious European forest to encounter some lesser known animals that may surprise you, especially the amphibians and reptiles.

Bryan Maltais takes you into a forest of southwest Germany to meet its wildlife as they emerge in the last days of Winter, and flourish through the breeding season into Summer. Large mammals, insects, amphibians and reptiles are featured in this whimsical tale.

The Fire Salamander and its plight with Bsal are featured. Bsal is a microscopic fungus that was accidentally imported into Europe and destroys the skin of many types of salamanders. The Fire Salamander is currently disappearing in parts of Europe due to the invasion by the non-native Bsal fungus. Watch this documentary to the end to learn about Bsal and how you can help prevent its spread.
