Supporting Endangered Amphibians and Reptiles is the New Green
What's more fun than a barrel of monkeys? A bucket of frogs, of course! When searching the WWF website for gifts suitable for my neice's first birthday, the colorful amphibians stood out because... well... there is a decent amount of buzz about the plight of polar bears but perhaps not enough about vertebrates.
Lucky for us, JustSaying isn't the only spot spreading the word. Treehugger just put up a great post about seven unique "creepy-crawly" creatures worth protecting: Leaf-nosed Lizards, Round Island Boas, Komodo Dragons, Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtles, Yellow Blotched Map Turtles, San Francisco Garter Snakes, Bluetail Mole Skinks.
