Guest Post: April is Frog Month

April is Frog Month!
This is month is easy to be green!
There are 3900 species of Amphibia Anura/Salientia, tailless reptiles, commonly known as the frog.  While the origin of Frog Month  seems to be unknown, it is easy to deduce that this month is dedicated to frog education.
Kids want a reptile? Looking to expand your exotic culinary prowess?Just love Zoological exploration?
All of these are great ways to celebrate Frog Month! But the Amphibian conservation organization Save the Frogs!,  and creator of an occasion that takes place on the last Saturday of April, makes the best case for Frog Month:
“Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979. Frogs and other amphibians face an array of threats from climate change to habitat destruction; pesticide use; over-collection for frog legs and dissections; invasive species; and infectious diseases spread by human activity. Frogs eat mosquitoes; provide us with medical advances; serve as food for birds, fish and monkeys; and their tadpoles filter our drinking water. Plus frogs look and sound cool, and kids love them
In this month, as we embrace being ecoconcious and earth friendly, celebrate one of the most important members of our ecosystems, the Frog.
