Frog Extinction

Frogs have survived whatever nature could throw at them for 200 million years. Now frog species are going extinct left and right. Why? one reason is because we humans are spreading the herbicide atrazine, a chemical similar to frog sex hormones on our fields. Even microscopic doses make male frogs develop eggs in their testes or develop ovaries. Farmers don’t seem to realise they need frogs for purely economic reasons to help control insects.
