SAVE THE FROGS! joins fight against Methyl Iodide
Known to the state of California to cause cancer and/or reproductive defects, Methyl Iodide is a harmful pesticide currently approved for use on strawberries. In Santa Cruz County, these strawberry fields surround the last remaining habitat of the Santa Cruz Long-Toed Salamander, one of the world’s most endangered salamanders. Read my letter to the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors asking them to ban methyl iodide. We're working on petitions right now, stay tuned!

Thoughts from SAVE THE FROGS! Member Erik Rogers
"I think this is a wonderful cause and one that does not get the attention it should receive. I do believe that attention to this issue could assist in saving all of mankind from all sorts of travesties. I like supporting your efforts and seeing them grow out into the entire world. You are doing a sensational job at spreading the word for the creatures who do not have a voice in their own fates. Thanks." --Erik Rogers; Santa Cruz, CA
