Save the Earth... and the Frogs

Here we are. 2019 and everything’s just amazing.

 

EXCEPT IT’S NOT.

 

Frogs of all kinds are being added to the endangered species list and we need to do something about it. In case you didn’t know, frogs play a major role in a little play called “The Ecosystem.” All these little guys have to do is eat insects and BOOM their contribution is made. However, life is a constant cycle, meaning that if the birds and snakes that feed on our lil froggo friends don’t have any lil froggos to feed on, then they will start to become endangered as well and so on and so forth.

 

Below is a list of some of the most critically and not to mention ~gorgeous~ endangered frogs in the world.

The Panamanian Golden Frog looks like if Spongebob Squarepants were a frog. These guys are actually considered to be a national icon and a lucky charm. But, due to climate change, they have landed on the critically endangered list.

Up next, we have the Wyoming Toad. These rare silver foxes only exist in captivity now as they are classified as being extinct in the wild, also due to climate change.

Okay guys, this one is probably my favorite. The Cowen's Mantella, also known as the Harlequin Mantella are dark emo-looking frogs that are the size of a dime. How fucking cute, right? Sadly, they have been massively over-exploited for pet trade which has consequently left them dwindling in numbers.

Lastly, we have the opposite-looking Spongebob Squarepants frog, The Corroboree. Due to the destruction of their habitat in Australia, only 250 of these cuties exist in the wild.

 

Save the Earth, save the frogs.
