Not sure if you are all aware of the current hardships Amphibians are facing...

Amphibians, worldwide, are in a dangerous decline. This is due to a combination of...

Loss of natural habitat
Pollution
Chytrid Fungus

Scientists believe that as many as 122 species of Amphibians have become extinct since 1980 and the problem is getting worse.

Now it looks like Britain is being hit, by this worldwide problem, with the first diagnosis of Chytrid Fungus in Britain.

This, for me, speaks volumes about the damage that we are doing to the planet. Creatures like Amphibians are very delicate and are a good indicator for environment problems.
