Why Should you Care?
Amphibians are vital and help keep humans and the environment healthy!
Limit the Spread of Disease
One thousand amphibians eat five million insects a year! This includes mosquitos, which can spread diseases to humans.
Indicate Environmental Problems
An amphibian's permeable skin allows liquids and gases to pass through, making them sensitive to changes and problems in the environment. Amphibians helps scientists know if action is needed.
Imrove Human Health
Compounds from frog skin can be used to treat humans for pain and infections.
Amphibian habitats range from deserts to the Artic circle. Many animals rely on amphibians for food, making them critical for the food web. Ecosystems can become off-balance when there are fewer or less diverse amphibian communities.
