Summary: Frog populations worldwide have been declining at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world's 6,490 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Amphibians are faced with an onslaught of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. This powerpoint forms the basis of a lecture that SAVE THE FROGS! Founder & Executive Director Dr. Kerry Kriger has been giving throughout North America.
