13 amazing and critically endangered frogs
Today is Endangered Species Day, an event organized by a number of conservation groups to raise awareness about the many species that are in real danger of becoming extinct. In honor of this day, I want to turn our gaze to one of the smaller but no less delightful animal orders: the frog. These tail-less amphibians are wonderfully diverse, but sadly many species find themselves in an increasingly inhospitable world. All of the frogs featured here are listed as “Critically Endangered” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. We hope that learning about these creatures will inspire readers to act to conserve their precious habitats.
