Historic City News reporters have learned that today is “Save the Frogs Day” — the world’s largest day of amphibian education and conservation action.
There are currently 115 events planned in 19 countries.
Whilst the disappearance of bees has gained significant media coverage, the slow vanishing of frogs and various amphibian species has gone largely un-noticed.
Save The Frogs Day aims to raise awareness of the plight of declining frog populations, and to encourage conservation and protective initiatives.
The scientific community has declared Friday April 29th, 2011 the 3rd Annual “Save the Frogs Day”.
On this day we encourage the appreciation and celebration of amphibians by people from all walks of life.
So, for all of our readers who will do their part today so that the frogs don’t croak tomorrow, Historic City News salutes you.
