Frogs In Peril

"Amphibians survived the disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs, but now they’re under siege from a variety of threats including habitat loss, devastating disease and being hunted for food. At the rate they’re disappearing, we could lose up to half of the world’s amphibians in our lifetimes. Frogs Forever? highlights the diversity and plights of frogs, salamanders and toads from different regions of the world. It also shows the amazing transformations they undergo in their lifetimes and offers some ways to help protect them."
