You've got to love a good ad-campaign. Especially when it's to raise awareness about threatened species around the world. Scientists have known for at least a decade now that amphibians have been suffering dramatic losses globally. This year, to celebrate Leap Day (February 29), zoos and nature parks around the world are joining forces to put on a program called, "Leaping Ahead of Extinction," to educate us all about the successful conservation programs for amphibians. It's about time we had some good news. There's no zoo in the Boston area featuring the program, but maybe there's one in yours?
Check out the Amphibian Ark for more news about our froggy friends.
