Over the past few decades scientists have recorded major declines in frog populations around the world.  More than 100 species have disappeared completely.  Die-offs are happening near human populations and in remote areas.

Major causes of frog declines include:
Habitat destruction
Chemical pollution
Epidemic diseases
Climate Change
Introduced species

Frog species have amazing diversity and colours!  The above species is the Blue-jeans frog from Costa Rica.
