February 17th, 2013: SAVE THE FROGS! and 80 other environmental organizations rallied with thousands of people in San Francisco for urgent action on climate change. Protesters called on the Obama Administration to do much more to tackle climate change, including rejecting the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would bring carbon-heavy tar sands oil from Canada through the U.S. to a world market. The rally in San Francisco was organized in solidarity with the rally in Washington D.C., which gathered over 35,000 people, making it the largest climate march in U.S. history.
The impacts of climate change are one of many threats that face amphibians and bring them ever closer to extinction. Amphibians need moist climates to reproduce, and this makes them extremely sensitive to climate change. In order to bring awareness to these threats we marched for the frogs!
