CONSERVATION STATUS

None of these three species is generally considered to be at risk. However, several countries have listed them as Endangered or Vulnerable. An Endangered species faces a very high risk of extinction in the wild, and a Vulnerable species faces a high risk. In some populations, the number of frogs has dropped quite low. Often, the destruction of habitat is to blame. Sometimes, people drain water from a marsh or stream to turn it into farmland or to build homes or businesses. In addition, the habitat may become dangerous to frogs because of fertilizers and other pollutants that drain from human developments into streams and ponds.
