According to I classify of UICN (International Union for the Conservation of the Nature), almost a third of 5.918 species of amphibians on the whole planet are threatened with extintion. The specialists of these species, mainly of the species newts, salamander and frogs, are those that may disappear first, as just published in the magazine 'Nature.'

They reached the conclusion that it is due to the destruction of their habitat, changes in the use of the territory, the climatic change, and a mushroom called quitridios.

I would have wanted Kermit and family to have better news, but this is what there is.
