Here are some ways you can help today! Here are some ways you can help today!

1) Make your yard amphibian friendly.

1) Make your yard amphibian friendly.

Turning your yard into an 'amphibian friendly' zone could have quite an impact on your neighborhood amphibian community, particularly in urban areas, where amphibian communities are fragmented by buildings, parking lots and streets. In most cases, making your yard into a habitat for frogs and salamanders takes less work than a perfectly groomed lawn. Our blog has been accumulating resources as we find them for ways to make amphibian habitats, build artificial wetlands and monitor your progress. We have included resources from GA Department of Natural Resources as well.

2) Keep your cat indoors.

2) Keep your cat indoors.

Growing evidence supports that outdoor pet cats and feral cats are a leading (or the leading) cause of amphibian declines in the US. Cats kill more amphibians every year than all other causes combined (including habitat destruction, pollution and disease) - literally hundreds of millions of frogs every year in the US die at the hands of domestic and feral cats . Please keep your cat indoors. They are naturally quite predatory and are devastating our amphibian and reptile (including bird) populations. Allowing your cat to remain outdoors will likely undermine other conservation actions you might take to enhance your property for amphibians and other wildlife.
