Today is World Frog Day!

Golden poison frog, Phyllobates terribilis

Hop to it, today is World Frog Day!

Today we’re Bringing the Zoo to You with a special look at the five species of poison dart frogs that call Reid Park Zoo home. Frogs are uniquely adapted amphibians that need wet habitats with clean water in order to survive. This means that conservation programs and policies that protect clean water and wetland areas are critical for preserving frog biodiversity, which in turn protects many other species. You can protect local desert frogs and other wildlife by conserving water and supporting water restoration efforts!
