Happy Leap Year!

Celebrate February 29th with a visit to http://www.amphibianark.org/ and learn about why 2008 is the “Year of the Frog”. Amphibians are in a major crisis– up to 50% of the 6000 species of amphibians are threatened with extinction due to climate change, habitat loss, and a deadly fungal disease called chytridiomycosis.
Use the extra 24 hours you have this year to learn about the conservation efforts taking place.

Here’s some video from YouTube of Animal Planet’s Jeff Corwin on The Ellen Show talking about the amphibian crisis.
