The Association of Zoos and Aquariums launched 2008 as the Year of the Frog to build awareness for amphibian conservation. Frogs, toads, salamanders and other amphibians are in danger. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) predicts that at least one-third of known amphibian species are in danger of disappearing from the earth for good.
What happens to amphibians today may harm other species in the future. But there’s good news: You can help!
- Create a frog friendly backyard habitat
- Conserve water at home--it's as easy as shortening your showers
- Reduce your dependence on fossil fuels
