Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frogs, mountain yellow-legged frogs and Yosemite toads are on the brink of extinction. They're experiencing sharp population declines due to introduced fish, toxic pesticides, killer diseases and habitat loss.
More than half of Yosemite toad populations are now gone. The situation is even worse for yellow-legged frogs: Their populations have declined by about 90 percent.
Protection under the Endangered Species Act is the best way to reverse these declines and put these rare amphibians on the path to recovery. Thankfully the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering a proposal to do just that.
But anti-environmental politicians, Tea Party groups and others who oppose state and federal regulations are denouncing proposals to protect these rare amphibians. Sierra Nevada's frogs and toads desperately need your help.
Take action now and tell the Service to protect California's rare amphibians.
