Save the Frogs!: Amphibian Conservation Center
The greatest mass extinction since the dinosaurs is happening in our time. Faced with a shrinking habitat and the threat of a deadly fungus, frogs and other amphibian species from all over the world – even here in our own backyard – need our help to survive. On February 15, 2007, the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens opened Save the Frogs! Amphibian Conservation Center, a sanctuary for amphibians in danger of contracting the deadly fungus. The Center allows visitors to see some of the threatened amphibians, hear the sounds of those that are already extinct, and learn what they can do to help.
