Thus far in 2011, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department has been forced to re-locate at least 107 California red-legged frog egg masses from areas where the egg masses were laid, due to the wetlands being pumped to sea. This almost certainly decreased the frogs' survival rate as they were taken to suboptimal sites and placed in artificially crowded conditions. It is unknown how many egg masses died directly of dessication before being rescued.

Iain, thanx for the petition sites. Signed both. I had a little froggie in my ground level bird bath/animal watering bowl today. He/she was just sitting there in the water enjoying him/herself. I wish I would've gotten a pic of it. It was a perfect day today in my corner of the world today. Thanx for the egg mass Tj. Good to see you again.

if you can make it!!

 For those of you who missed the rally there is a vote taking place on the 6th October

REPLY FROM SIGNED PETITION-KERRY KRIGER

 

 

Dear iain,



Thanks for helping save the
Sharp Park Wetlands, which provide critical habitat for endangered frogs, snakes, birds, crayfish and other wildlife, as well as valuable recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. The Sharp Park vote takes place at City Hall October 6th, 2011 immediately following a public hearing on the matter. We need you there at City Hall wearing a SAVE THE SHARP PARK WETLANDS! shirt. We can provide you the shirt free if you RSVP to contact@savethefrogs.com in advance! The more of our supporters attend the hearing, the more pressure San Francisco's politicians will feel to vote in favor of the frogs. You will also be allowed to speak your opinion to the Board of Supervisors, likely for 2 minutes! The time is not yet set, but if you RSVP, we will keep you posted as details emerge. Clear your calendar! SAVE THE FROGS!


Wetlands are one of the world's most important ecosystems, but well over half of the world's wetlands have been drained. With your support we will ensure that the City of San Francisco takes the lead in environmental conservation, and protects this rare and valuable coastal wetland.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO YOUR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES!

Hi,

Wetlands are one of the most endangered ecosystems on the planet. In 1931 the City of San Francisco built a golf course on top of the
Sharp Park Wetlands, home to the endangered California Red-Legged Frog and San Francisco garter snake, as well as numerous bird species. The golf course has been killing endangered frogs and costing the City's taxpayers money ever since. On October 6th, the City of San Francisco will vote on proposed legislation that would save the Sharp Park Wetlands.



Please send the City of San Francisco this automated letter and urge them to turn the Sharp Park Golf Course over to its next door neighbor the National Park Service.

Have I Got Newts For You - September

Your monthly round up of reptile and amphibian articles, by Conservation Communication Officer Lucy.

 Possible biological control for deadly amphibian fungus

There’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon… A species of Daphnia (water flea) has been found to eat the fungus that is thought to be responsible for wiping out amphibian populations across the world. Zoologists at Oregon State University found that Daphnia will eat the zoospore (free-swimming stage) of the chytrid fungus, in trials in the laboratory. The team will now start field studies to determine if this tiny invertebrate could hold the key to controlling this devastating fungus. Meanwhile, scientists from Cornell University, New York, have identified genetic factors that make some frogs immune.

Thanks Terry for that neato picture of those Frog eggs. They look like Bubbles. lol..I'm so behing on reading. So much going on. Iain you were right to put that Good news here. I really don't want articles in The Feel Good Pond. Great News for our Froggies. And if the Fleas get out of control, maybe the Bats can eat them. Yippie for the Frogs!!  Couldn't send you or Terry green stars so I'm sending Hugs to everyone. Dottie says goodnight too now. xoxo

!Hola!, Martine y todos mi amigas y amigo!! Muchos abrazos y besos para todos!

Y en ingles.... Siouxz, I'm sure Fyre will be very happy to accomodate all the lady Irish Setters whenever you find suitable ones. Irish Setters are so beautiful and we need more of them so I hope you find a few femailes for him to get it on with!

I just popped in for a minute. Still a bit tired from my 5 days of running around and the stress of worrying about my daughter-in-law, so I'll keep it short. I thank you all for being such good friends. You're the best, all of you!!
