It’s a rare thing to witness the extinction of an entire class of
animal. We weren’t around to see the dinosaurs disappear, and the dodo
was just one species of bird — it’s not like all birds slowly
disappeared. But according to many conservation scientists, that’s
exactly what amphibians are facing: Frogs and others in the amphibia
class are on their way out unless the conservation community takes
immediate action.

Wow, it’s hard to imagine that my kids or grandkids may never know what a frog is…
