The frogs need you…

As you know I’m a bit of a froggie, with a particular love for reed frogs (see previous posts here, here and here), so of course I’m always keeping an ear and eye open for any updated news about our little threatened friends.

The EWT (Endangered Wildlife Trust) has a relatively new Threatened Amphibian Programme which focuses on the conservation of frogs and their habitats across the country. They are busy running a survey at the moment to establish the public’s perception with regards to frogs. Amazingly (to me anyway) some people are actually scared of frogs and there are all sorts of superstitions and fallacies involving them which inadvertently result in people doing harm to the precious little things.

Please download it at the link below, fill it in and send it back to the email address listed in the document. It won’t take long, but it will be very helpful to the EWT.
