Apparently it's World Frog Day today though I can't seem to find a website for it!
Many species of frogs face difficulties in the wild, including
Loss of habitat – we often build on areas where frogs live, or fill in the ponds where they breed
Pollution – chemical pollution of ponds and lakes can be a big problem
Disease – there are a couple of really worrying diseases effecting frogs and other amphibians, you can find out more here
One of the easiest ways to help frogs (if you have a garden) is to build a pond. Crafty Green Boyfriend's Mum has two frog ponds in her garden. This is the larger one and is currently home to about 12 adult frogs and a lot of spawn
this post from February.
Last night just on cue, the first tadpoles appeared in the pond! So I recorded these on the Woodland Trust's Nature's Calendar website.
If you want to learn more about frogs and how you can help them, the Froglife website is a great place to start!
Today is also International Day of Happiness and seeing frogs always makes me happy!
I do agree with your last sentence …
Today is also International Day of Happiness, yes I saw this on the news earlier, and seeing frogs always makes me happy too.
All the best Jan
I've been so wanting to spot a frog, toad or spawn this year... but no luck so far, despite visiting a small nature reserve on a toad-patrol route...
