Red-Legged Frogs were once widespread across the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately, their numbers have declined due to non-native fish, introduced bullfrogs, a deadly chytrid fungus, and habitat destruction.
DONATE TODAY and help us protect Red-Legged Frogs and thousands of other frog species around the world.

Farmers: Reduce your impact
Frogs require healthy streamside habitats. If you have livestock, please fence off the vegetated sections of streams where frogs live, and restrict your livestock to specific portions of stream. This will reduce trampling of important frog breeding, feeding and living areas. If possible, fence off at least 30 meters (100 feet) on either side of the stream.

Here's "A Toad's Wish" by 14 year old Noor Hewaidi
The sunken treasures of the sea
are not as rooted as my plea
For me to have the slightest chance
I can pay my living in advance
I suppose by now you are suspicious
so I pronounce to you my wishes:
Hopes of unearthing an innocent shelter
will salvage me from unwanted welter
I yearn that you respect my will
and discover a distant hamlet to build your mill
I complete nature in many ways
so seek for your dog another area to graze
My habitat is fragile and therefore shy
and lately I've been declaring too many goodbyes
The Sun is strong but not as stern
as those who make way for it to burn
If my home and I rest in shade, let us be
Dare not destruct the source whether leaf or tree
I'd love this world as long as I live
but there are mishaps that I do not forgive
so if deep in the forest you hearken a swish
then prance away and grant thy toad's wish.
Live Near Yellowstone?
I'll be giving free public lectures on frog extinctions there July 12th through 14th, so please come and bring some friends. Details at http://savethefrogs.com/events
FROGS! makes front page of The Oregonian
Abby Haight of The Oregonian, Oregon's largest newspaper, recently interviewed me about the decline of Oregon's native frog populations. Read her article "Oregon's native amphibians on the edge", which appeared on the front page of the June 9th issue.
We make news because of your support!
Please donate to SAVE THE FROGS! today so that we can continue educating our society about frog extinctions and the ways everybody can help SAVE THE FROGS!
Please pass this message on to your friends and family, and help us spread the word about amphibian extinctions. Together we can SAVE THE FROGS!
