    It\’s your duty to protect the public health and safety. That means protecting our web of life, from top to bottom, not just a few places here and there! The missile defence shield failed, we all lived. That won\’t happen if we let down our web of life defence shield, which we all depend on for clean water, air, food and our own bodies!

  6. lana sutton Says:

    Protect public health and safety, not private profit. That’s your real job, not helping corporations exploit us and our resources, while our web of life burns!

    Please don’t make the same mistakes as Australia, do all you can to save the frogs.

    It appears that a concerted effort is being made by an organization opposed possibly to Center for Biological Diversity, and/or the Endangered Species Act itself in public comment about ES listing for these amphibians.

    If anyone not having commented on FWS-R8-ES-2012-0074-0554 and FWS-R8-ES-2012-0100-0557 at regulations.gov could please do so, support is needed.

    Having been a 15 year resident of the SIerras, and a frequent visitor for another 15 years, watching high country lakes, seeing how the migratory fowl stop often for many days at lakes just opening from winter ice, I believe it is possible that the frogs were once highly important parts of ecosystems supporting North American species and systems than has previously been understood.

    Just a note:
    A rescued wolf and I had for years walked moonlit nights among frogs unseen, swallowed by the immensity of sound of calling frogs – louder and more magnificent than a musical symphony. The experience is one you should seek. It will open you more completely to understanding the life of all things, especially those of which we have so little understanding.
    We have also traveled before dawn, crossing the path hundreds and hundreds of migrating red-bellied newts, on trails later visitors never knew that that impossibly bright and mysterious walker existed.
    We do not know which species are keystone to the places, the world, we love. But we may expect the possibility that EVERY species is vital, and none should be outside our deepest care and concern.

    Dr.Kriger,

    Please add a search capacity to the Save the Frogs website.
    I am trying to find info about the Oregon Spotted Frog, for which Critical Habitat Designation comment is only open until Oct 28.

    FWS-R1-ES-2013-0088-0001 and FWS-R1-ES-2013-0013-0001 on regulations.gov are the rule IDs and comment is open now.
