Frogs In Peril
Amphibians survived the disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs, but now they’re under siege from a variety of threats. Habitat loss, pollution and hunting are serious concerns, but the most immediate threat to amphibians is a parasitic fungus called the amphibian chytrid (“kit-rid”); it’s a deadly disease that is quickly spreading across the planet. At the current rate, over half of the world’s amphibian species could disappear within our lifetime.
