The EWT celebrated the 10th Leap Day for Frogs this year, which coincides with EWT’s 50th anniversary. To commemorate both milestones, we will share a fun frog fact each Friday throughout the year. Here is how our Leap Day celebrations went this year
To show the link between amphibian diversity (i.e. healthy amphibian populations) and wetland habitat health, the Endangered Wildlife Trust started long-term monitoring protocols in 2016 to determine habitat health and identify amphibian species diversity at four project sites in eThekwini Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal
The Rough Moss Frog is a Critically Endangered frog species found only on a single mountain range, the Klein Swartberg, in the Overberg district of the Western Cape, South Africa. In 2020 we realized that this little frog was in big trouble.
The Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus) has adapted to thrive in human-altered landscapes. However, this also means they face many risks from humans and their activities.
While Leap Day for Frogs does highlight the threats to these creatures, it also celebrates them and creates an appreciation for them, which is the first step towards recognising their importance.
