Hop to it and Save the Frogs!Posted on 5th Dec 2011 by Scott Goodson in Blog
Love wildlife? Want to preserve endangered species for generations to come? Frogs need your help! A movement is gathering momentum here in the States to ‘Save the Frogs’. Founded in 2008, it’s America’s first and only public charity dedicated to amphibian conservation.
As the founder of StrawberryFrog – the world’s first cultural movement agency – it’s only natural that we’d want to help our frog friends and support the ‘Save the Frogs’ campaign to protect amphibian populations and promote a society that respects and appreciates nature.
Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide and nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979.
Frogs and other amphibians face an array of threats from climate change to habitat destruction; pesticide use; over-collection for frog legs and dissections; invasive species; and infectious diseases spread by human activity. Frogs eat mosquitoes, provide us with medical advances, serve as food for birds, fish, and monkeys, and their tadpoles filter our drinking water. Frogs are bio-indicators and used in medicinal research that benefits humans. Plus they look and sound cool, and kids love them!
Even though amphibians are going extinct at an incredibly alarming rate, you can help prevent this from happening! Slow down on wet nights, as this is when amphibians like to move from place to place. Never buy wild-caught amphibians as pets and do not eat frog legs.
We can take care of our planet by conserving our resources, eating locally grown, organic food and remembering to vote for the environment. Most importantly, spread the word about what is happening to amphibians around the globe.
If you want to support this movement and Save the Frogs then jump onboard now. The charity works in California, across the USA, and around the world to prevent the extinction of amphibians, and to create a better planet for humans and wildlife.
