Fading Frogs

Forging Futures for Fragile Frogs

Frogs and other amphibians are currently dying off at unprecedented rates. Of the more than 7000 known species of frogs and toads, it is estimated that over 70% are in decline. Not only are 3100, or roughly a third, of all amphibian species threatened with extinction, but it is predicted that that same amount may be extinct by 2050. And while the threats amphibians face are numerous, variable and complex, all are anthropogenically caused.
