The Frogs are Croaking
Here’s some bleak news for a Monday: Up to 1/3 of amphibians today are at risk for extinction, according to the Global Amphibian Assessment and a recent post to Bright Green Blog.
Scientists think it has something to do with their highly permeable skin. The slightest changes in environment (like a 1 degree rise in temperature) can have drastic effects. These changes threaten the bullfrogs you might hear in your backyard and the exotic Amazon Milk frog that’s native to Brazil.
But don’t feel blue. You can do something. As a wildlife enthusiast, you’re the best person to speak up for the frogs, and speak up for the strong climate and clean energy legislation needed to help them thrive.
This Thursday, Oct. 1, people from across the country will be calling their U.S. Senators to ask for a wildlife friendly climate and clean energy bill.
As wildlife enthusiasts, we’re seeing firsthand how global warming is already affecting the natural world we cherish. That’s why, we’re the people who need to speak up.
- Tell your friends and family that Thursday, Oct. 1 is a big day to help make the difference.
- And, let us know that we can count on you to call your senators this Thursday, Oct.1.
As one famous frog once said, “It’s not easy being green,” but it is easy for you to make the call on Thursday, ask your friends and family to do the same, and speak up for strong climate and clean energy legislation to protect amphibians everywhere!
