Save The Frogs

There are over 5000 species of amphibians on the planet and over one third of them are currently facing extinction. We've been hearing about it for years, but frogs are still in trouble.

There is plenty of debate about the exact cause of the problem, but according to Alan Pounds, an ecologist at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve and Tropical Science Center in Costa Rica, "Disease is the bullet killing frogs, but climate change is pulling the trigger."
