    t first glance, some may think it is silly to have a “Save the Frogs” day. There is, however, good reason for alarm and good reason for us to take heed.

    "Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world’s 6,418 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. At least 100 species have completely disappeared since 1980, and this is NOT normal: amphibians naturally go extinct at a rate of only about one species every 250 years!"

    Save the Frogs

    Yes, you heard me right. Today, April 28, is "Save a Frog Day." At first glance, some may think it is silly to have a "Save the Frogs" day. There is, however, good reason for alarm and good reason for us to take heed.

    It is important for us to pay close attention to this. When species disappear like this it is an indication that something is amiss in our environment. The current swine flu outbreak is evidence of how connected we are as components in our environment. Close attention needs to be focused on our environment.

    "Frog populations are faced with an onslaught of environmental problems: pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. Unless these problems are remedied, amphibian species will continue to disappear, resulting in irreversible consequences to the planet's ecosystems." Save the Frogs

    Point is, when we see a sudden increase in mortality rates for animal species, it should set off alarms in our heads. Before this current swine flu outbreak, we were warned about "bird" flu and told to keep an eye out for dead birds. Also, West Nile virus causes bird deaths before it hits the human population. There are also many theories about the origins of the HIV virus and many conclude that the HIV virus "jumped" from other species to humans. I'm just saying, don't take that frog for granted and keep your eyes and ears open. We're going to have to help each other out by being in tune with our environment.

    peace

    [email protected] glance, 2nd glance and by the third time I was just staring looking like......:SuN035:

    "Frog day"?? (good reason for alarm?)

    - my man, the alarm been going off for over 500 hundred years! you ain't heard:?:



    & before the "bird flu" it was another type of flu and before that flu it was mercury in the fish and before that it was "killer bee's" and before the bee's it was samanella. Before that it was "gangsta rap" (when the hip hop police started killing rappers) and before that it was Aids and before that it was heroin and before that it was "black people". Before that it was the "white woman"!

    And at the root of it all -

    was and still is/the diabolical cave man who is diametrically opossed to all things natural.....

    amen

    When I saw the thing about the frog day, didn't know what to think and then I thought well they have days for everything else so I guess the frogs can have them a day too.
