Save The Frogs!

April 28th Is Save The Frogs Day!
Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world’s amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1980, which is not normal. Amphibians naturally go extinct at a rate of only about one species every 500 years. Amphibian populations are faced with an array of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. Unless quick action is taken, amphibian species will continue to disappear, resulting in irreversible consequences to the planet’s ecosystems and to humans. Frogs eat mosquitoes, provide us with medical advances, serve as food for birds, fish and monkeys, and their tadpoles filter our drinking water. Plus frogs look and sound cool, and kids love them-so there are lots of reasons to save the frogs! Frog lovers can enjoy and learn more with these titles
