Frogs are a "Key" species. They have been born deformed for several years now and it's from Pesticides. The decline and deformity is a sign people are involved.

It's not just frogs that are affected. But their cause alone is worth the ban.

I don't particularly want to pat a frog but they are kinda cute and absolutely worthwhile saving. Every species is important to their world. Every animal should be able to live in an environment that is best suited to their specific needs - away from cruel, thoughtless, greedy, selfish humans. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

I have also noticed frog decline. I got in touch with sfwd about this very problem That was 6 years ago. It takes forever for anything to get done on environment. It might be too late to save us or our planet. It saddens me what men have done to our planet. Makes me weep.

Ultimately there is no such thing as a "safe" pesticide. They are all toxins.

Atrazine levels at my place on Rough River Lake in Kentucky have been above 3 pbb for awhile and can you guess? No frogs left. The past two years I have measured 104 ppb and 13.2 ppb. I won't eat the fish. I didn't see any duck weed last summer and the green algae seems to be half or less than what I'm used too.

We don't use it in Europe I'm glad to see. I guess the laws/policies are governed by huge contracts with chemical companies and think farmers have very little power in your country. It sounds like a really dangerous substance that is slowly destroying biodiversity, life even. why spray it on what we are going to eat ? Crazy !

Humans and frogs share half our DNA. If Atrazine has proven to be harmful to frogs, imagine what affect it's having on humans. For the sake of the world's remaining frog populations, and for the health of ourselves and our children, I urge the United States Environmental Protection Agency to place a federal ban on the sale and use of Atrazine.

I don't have much hope for the EPA since it's corrupt to the core and in the pockets of criminal corporations . Europe just implemented a continent wide ban on the neonicotinoids..the nerve agent pesticides that are killing off bees and pollinators..Europe came to their senses much to dismay of the terrorist poison corporations, Bayer, Sygenta, Dow and Monsanto, but of course the EPA in the US immediately declared they would not ban those nerve agent poisons, even though they know full well...

Without pollinators in the ecology that would also be the end of food crops but the EPA would murder all of America if it meant a short term profit for their circle of thugs.
