Since the 1950's, frog populations have been declining significantly, and about one-third of the world’s species are found to be threatened with extinction. Since the 1980's, over one hundred and twenty species are believed to have become extinct. The decline in the population of frogs has been attributed to emerging fungal disease, habitat destruction and modification, pollution, climate change, pesticide use, and more. More notably all these led to a rise in the number of malformations among frogs. In the recent years, World Frog Day is considered to be the world’s largest day for amphibian education and conservation action. People and various organizations are using this awareness Day to focus on the universal decline in the population of amphibians in the locations across the world.
Celebrating the World Frog Day is quite simple. Get to know about the frogs, their, habitats, types, and its environmental roles in detail. Raise awareness about the decline in frog’s population and the importance of saving them among the community. Help in bring some environmental changes such as reducing pollution, pesticide usages to prevent them from being killed as they are the major threats to the frogs.
