Amphibians as a group are declining in numbers. A number of reasons are behind this decline. Among those reasons is agricultural pesticide and herbicide use. Dr. Tyrone Hayes has been on the front line working against atrazine use in the United States.
Dr. Tyrone Hayes recently gave a presentation on the reasons behind banning atrazine. The presentation was part of a class with Save the Frogs! founder Dr. Kerry Kriger.
Each Wednesday and Sunday, Save the Frogs! holds a class on a different aspect of protecting amphibians. You can watch previous classes on their web site and get a schedule of upcoming classes.
