With over 2,000 species currently facing extinction, amphibians are in rapid decline on a global scale but are often overlooked. The importance of healthy frog and toad populations are not just indicators of having a balanced ecosystem but are beneficial in numerous aspects of human living.

The seminar will end with a live Q&A session, but we also recommend that participants email any questions relating to this topic to the MRC’s Caity Savoia at caity@mrcirl.org by October 1.

This is a free event, but you must register to receive the zoom link or to reserve your spot at the Lagoon House as space is limited (subject to cancellation). We will be live streaming it through the MRC’s Facebook page and will be recording the presentation for future viewing!
