Focusing On The Conservation of Ecosystems, Habitats & Wildlife

SAVE The Frogs Day – April 29, 2011

Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide and nearly one-third of the world’s amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979. Founded in 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! is America’s first and only public charity dedicated to amphibian conservation. Their mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife.

Please become a member and support their worldwide amphibian conservation efforts. Together we can SAVE THE FROGS!

California Has 3 Species Of True Frogs: Native Reg-Legged Frogs (Now Becoming Scare Because Of Habitat Loss) and Yellow Legged Frogs, and The East Coast Import, The Bullfrog.

California Red-legged Frogs are typically found only in California. They are approximately 2-5.5 inches in length and are brown, gray, olive or red with black fle…cks and blotches. They have a whitish border above their upper jaw and their underside is normally red. These frogs toes are not fully webbed and have weak throaty calls that last 2-3 seconds. California Red-legged Frogs are often found in dense, shrubby vegetation near bodies of water. In 1996, they were listed as a threatened species by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service due to habitat destruction, being sold as food, and being preyed upon by non-native species.
