Michael Starkey of SAVE THE FROGS! will offer an informative presentation about current threats to amphibians and what you can do about it. Amphibian populations are declining at an alarming rate. Nearly one third of the world’s amphibian species are on the edge of extinction with almost 200 species having disappeared since 1979. What is causing this crisis and how can you help?
