20 March - World Frog Day
World Frog Day is created with an intention to save the different varieties of frogs from being extinct. Frogs are tailless amphibians whose origin dates back to nearly 256 million years ago. There are 6,000 species of frogs across the world. Frogs can drink water through their skin. They can jump 20 times their body length. Some of them are poisonous.
March 20th is World Frog Day, which was created in 2009 to increase awareness of the plight of threatened frog species around the world. All amphibians, including frogs, are important components of the global ecosystem, as indicators of environmental health and contributors to human health. More than one third of them are currently threatened with extinction. Addressing the amphibian extinction crisis represents the greatest species conservation challenge in the history of humanity.
