Brits asked to count frogs for science

Worldwide one-third of frog species are facing extinction from two diseases, one viral and one fungal. This is of course in addition to their sensitivity to pollution, climate change, and destruction of its natural habitat. If you live in Britain, you can help with the effort to track frogs and determine whether they're sick by visting the website Froglife and filling out and mailing a 14-question survey. Not that bad a task to help protect frogs worldwide. One thousand responses are needed to adequately sample British frogs.

That is a wierd survey, but one that could probably tell a lot. Interesting post, well done.
