Amphibians are one of the most sensitive of any phyla. The permeability of their skin and their dual life stages mean that they are one of the first groups hit by changes in the environment. Their skin will absorb any pollution. Out in the Amazon Rainforest we are still seeing amphibian communities that are almost entirely unaffected by outside forces. Down in here, miles from towns or cities, and deep below the canopy where the rains are frequent and the clouds blanket over the trees, we find the most incredible diversity of frogs. THis one was nearly transparent, and had a quality of green that almost made it glow...
When you save a rainforest from being cut down there are entire worlds, families, communities— things we've never seen—protected. @junglekeepers @ageofunion
