"One third of frogs worldwide, and one quarter in our local region, are threatened with extinction. Of immense concern is that eight of our most commonly seen species look like they are declining in recent times. Frogs are very sensitive to all components of our environment; water for breeding and hydration, soil and vegetation for hiding and feeding, and clean air to breathe, not only with lungs but through their skin! Unfortunately, this means that dangerous substances in the air or water can end up in their body. This is why frog presence is such a useful indicator of ecosystem health.
