Scientist of the Invisible

Too much ammunition lately, not enough self-control.

Het Jaar van de Kikker


2008 is het Jaar van de Kikker. Niet volgens de Chinese kalender, wel volgens de natuurbeschermers, inclusief held Sir David.

Nou zijn er heel veel zielige dieren, maar met de kikkers gaat het echt heel slecht:
While the geological record shows us that extinction is a natural, ever-occurring process, the extinction rate we're seeing among amphibians today appears higher than anything seen before, and even palaeoherpetologists familiar with the amphibian fossil record have gone on record stating that the extinction levels we are currently witnessing are not in the least bit normal (Delfino 2005, Stuart et al. 2005), and are unprecedented in terms of the geological record. It is not in the least bit sensational to presume that we are going to lose about half of all amphibians within the next five to ten years, unless major efforts are made.

De kikker op de foto hierboven is bijvoorbeeld in het wild waarschijnlijk uitgestorven.

Dus teken in ieder geval even die online petitie.
