Frogs and Global Warming

1. Why is the Earth represented as a frog in this cartoon?
2. What is happening to the frog species on the planet? Why?
3. What recent research indicates the connection between global warming and the extinction of the frogs?
4. Protection of their habitats has been shown to be an ineffective method of saving the frog species from extinction. Can you think of another way to help the frogs?
5. How is the fate of the frogs connected with the fate of all other species on Earth? Does the description “canaries in a coal mine” apply here? Why?
