I have always loved frogs and a number of years back was so thrilled when our tiny pond started attracting them. Along with our decorative flags they were a great addition to our outdoor fun. Every year there were more of them in all sizes, babies to rather large adults.. I loved watching them and hearing them at night.
A few years back , rather abrubtly the numbers dropped to only a couple and even those you could tell were not healthy. I started hearing about the plight of frogs and did a little reading. It is really rather shocking. According to SavetheFrog.com :
"Amphibians are without a doubt the most endangered group of animals on the planet: nearly 1/3 of the world's 6,485 species are on the brink of extinction. There are six major factors negatively affecting amphibians, and all are due to human activity: habitat destruction, infectious diseases, pollution & pesticides, climate change, invasive species, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. "

By displaying one of the many frog garden flags that are available you may make someone else fall in love with frogs and take an interest in taking steps to help save them. Here are the flags we have at Custom Flags and Gifts.
Thank you for reading.
