"Even in what we consider pristine areas, we are seeing amphibian decline, If anything is doing poorly in an area we think is protected, that says something about our level of protection and about what may be happening outside those areas."

They would be the most affected by the toxins we use and ends up in our water. What a shame. Thanks Dianne and Michael.

This is what happening with the populations of all animals; the numbers are declining. Man is doing a good job in destroying our earth and environment. We have to wake up or we will one day discover that man is the last standing, and then---there will be nothing.

Thx. Dianne Lynn..

Thanks Michael too for the article. As I said when I started this group. Amphibians have  Porous Skin like us and when they are in trouble so are we.  In between storms again so gotta go and Food Pantry day tomorrow so I'm off to bed, Fruddys. xoxo

Sad that our grandchildren and great grandchildren will never have the opportunity to live in the same world as these beautiful frogs.

Very sad, but at least they have a captive breeding program so they won't totally disappear.

Thx. Kelly and John..

Really good article and some good news. I also liked the one about Kenya imposing more jail time for poachers. I agree Penny, at least there is a Sanctuary for the lil' froggie. xo
