Fungus and Frogs are the subject of an upcoming television special... It seems that a frog killing fungus has gotten so bad that infected frogs might need diluted Clorox bleach for deep cleaning. (Note that a previous post reported the suggested use of yet more anitibiotics to fight this fungus.) But as usual and especially also, habitat destruction with chemical and pesticide run-off into the streams needs to be curtailed if we are to hear the piping and croaking that is such a bloved part of a beautiful summer's day.
