Friday Frog Blog: From Pennsylvania to the Chesapeake to the Egg

Mudraker and his posse of fish are all alive and well in our tank and their community continues to thrive.

Here’s your week in frog:

  • Heavily endangered cricket frogs in Pennsylvania (they’re really tiny and cute) have been discovered in a new location.
  • Pesticides in the Chesapeake Bay are possibly linked to the decline of frogs in the region.
  • Frog eggs turn out to be sophisticated globs of matter.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
