Did you know, frogs are disappearing fast?
200 amphibian species have already gone extinct since 1979!
2,000 amphibian specieis are threatened with extinction and may not survive the 21st century.
But there are things we can all do to help save the frogs:
Don't use pesticides Don't eat frog legs Don't purchase wild-caught amphibians as pets Do not stock non-native fish in your pond or stream Conserve resources-especially water Eat locally grown, organic food Donate to SAVE THE FROGS Wear a SAVE THE FROGS t-shirt Spread the word: use email, your website, blogsite, Facebook
(If we all do a little, it will do a lot!)
And the day after I went to the www.Savethefrogs.com lecture the Oregonian newspaper had a story about airlifted frogs, "Airlifted from Extinction" on Saturday, April 25, 2009. It was about the chytrid fungus and overhunting nearly wiping out another species. If you want to read more, check out this link.
