Amphibians are an important part of the web of life on this planet.
Amphibians are Bioindicators.
They have permeable skin and therefore they are very susceptible to toxic chemicals, even in very small amounts in either the air or water.
The forests and wetlands that the amphibians require are the life support systems of the earth.
These natural ecosystems which amphibians and other wildlife depend upon should no longer be looked upon as simple resources to be exploited and destroyed by industry to provide short term economic benefits. These are the life support systems of the earth on which all creatures depend, including humans.
