Frogs

What Defenders Is Doing to Help Frogs

Frogs are facing many threats to their survival. Chytrid fungus is literally decimating populations of frogs and other amphibians around the world. Domestic and international trade of amphibians for use as exotic pets, food and medicines are wreaking havoc with their numbers. They are also affected by habitat loss, pollution, pesticides, competition from invasive species and climate change.
