    Hi!

    I live in CT, and have wonderful frog habitat on my property. I use all natural, organic, compost in my gardens and haven’t used pesticides since I bought the property (over an acre) 10 years ago. I’m looking for a local group that might be interested in releasing frogs/amphibians into my wetlands. Any advice?

    I think one of the best ways we can all help amphibians is for each of us to support natural habitats and populations in our own residential properties.

    So many of the resources you share here are about raising awareness, raising money, etc… How about we raise some FROGS!? That’s something we can all do right now!

    this is a very pressding issue i just recently wrote a case study of the chytrid fungus for my college to try and help them to preserve species as best they can and when buying frogs to only get captive bred ones and not wild caught as this can introduce the fungus into our own collections and bring them to our country tahnk you for all you are doing and keep up the good work
