Y’s celebration is for YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE IT: a SAVE THE FROGS DAY

ImageSaturday, April 28th: Y’s celebration is for YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE IT: a SAVE THE FROGS DAY. People across theUS andUK are banding together today in a celebration of the frog.

According to http://www.savethefrogs.com, “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. Plus they look and sound cool, and kids love them!

ImageFounded in 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! isAmerica’s first and only public charity dedicated to amphibian conservation. Our mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. We work inCalifornia, across theUSA, and around the world to prevent the extinction of amphibians, and to create a better planet for humans and wildlife.”

Go green today, do something good for our planet, help save a frog.

    If I see a frog today I’ll be nice. It’s been many years since I’ve eaten frogs legs and I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to have them again.

    Of all the days today was the day that my boys found and captured a frog in the garden. Thankfully whilst they were having lunch the frog made a break for safety and was never seen again, much to my boys dismay!
