Just personally killing a frog (which is not nice, don’t do it) isn’t the problem. Many frog species are endangered or under stress because of environmental pollutants. We have to be careful with pesticides, herbicides, carbon, plastics and other petroleum products, fuels, and so on. Let’s work on being kind to our home planet.
Everything you use, that winds up in the water supply, will negatively affect frogs.
Everything you flush down the toilet (medications, etc) find their way into the water supply and affect all life forms that live in streams, rivers, and oceans.
Everything goes somewhere.
Small creatures, like Frogs, Fish, and Bees are among the early environmental indicators. If they go, our days on this planet will be numbered.
This is a cocopeat filter, which could offer a sustainable option for water filtration in cities. Wastewater is passed through, trapping suspended solids. These are then consumed by microbes living in the dust. The process removes 90% of solids and pathogens found in domestic wastewater. The final product is an effluent safe enough to be used for crop irrigation or simply discharged back into the environment. Read more in our latest post.
The 16th Annual Backyard Bird Count will be held Friday, February 15 through Monday, February 18.
It’s fun, free, easy, and every checklist submitted helps ornithologists at Cornell University and the National Audubon Society learn more about birds and the environment.
If you’d like to participate, please visit BirdSource, where you can download a checklist to use, view results from past counts, and print a free poster with images of commonly seen birds of North America!
