A Journey Through the Rapidly Shrinking World of Amphibians
(While There is Still Time to Save Them)
by Tim O'Brian and illustrations by John Graziano
We should better believe that if we don't change something that many amphibians won't be around much longer. And extinction is forever.
Of the 6000 known species of amphibians that live on the earth, scientists believe that at least 500 species will become extinct within the next 10 years!
2008 was named "The Year of the Frog" by the global conservation community. It was intented to build public awareness to the wide and interesting diversity of amphibians and of the crisis they face.
The publications of this book is Ripley's Aquariums contribution to that effort. Frog Oddities is a fun and easy way to learn to appreciate the frogs, newts and salamanders with whom we share the earth. More importantly, it sheds light on how sad the world would be without them.
All proceeds from the sale of these books will go to one of several amphibian conservation funds.
