Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the goal of the International Day of Pesticide Action (October 12th, 2013) is to raise global awareness of the threats to wildlife and humans caused by society’s increasing use of harmful pesticides. There are over 18,000 registered pesticides in the USA, and over a billion kilograms of pesticides are sprayed worldwide annually. Pesticides contaminate our tap water and food supplies, poison our streams, and cause health problems for aquatic wildlife as well as farmworkers and millions of humans living near agricultural areas. Please join SAVE THE FROGS! in Washington DC this October 12th or help us raise global awareness by holding an educational event in your school or community!
