Save the Frogs!
As many of you know, amphibian conservation is very important all of us here at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. From our conservation efforts in Panama to our local exhibits and Wyoming Toad Recovery Program - we care about amphibians.
Frogs are the most threatened group of animals on Earth. Nearly one-third of the world’s amphibian species are threatened with extinction, and at least 150 species have already completely disappeared in recent decades.

Our Director of Conservation and Animal Health recently forwarded a link to an informative site, Savethefrogs.com where you can learn more about these important creatures and their importance to our world. From Cool Frog Facts to teacher resources, this website features fun and simple ways to be involved.
