After the rain yesterday, kids saw a frog for the first time!
Amphibians have been around for an estimated 350 million years. Very sensitive to perturbations in ecosystems, they are excellent indicators of the quality of the overall environment. Their population is sadly declining. Scientists are talking about habitat loss, climate change, UV radiation, pollutants and diseases...
You will find a great post on EcoEtsy's blog written by Jennifer from SewnNaturalStudio here about frogs and environment.
Because I craft better than I write, I made a frog softie out of organic red and white velvet. Who wants to kiss the frog? Ribbit! New addition to the shop.
