Ban the Big, Bad Bullfrog


Voracious, exotic bullfrogs are destroying native wildlife across the western United States.

In California bullfrogs eat and outcompete animals like the endangered California tiger salamander and California red-legged frog. They also spread deadly diseases like chytrid fungus, which is wiping out native frog and toad populations.

Millions of bullfrogs are imported into the Golden State each year for food, pets or dissection. But many bullfrogs escape or get set free, largely defeating taxpayer-funded conservation efforts to remove nonnative bullfrogs from the wild.

Bullfrogs also threaten California's amphibian populations, which already face unprecedented declines from habitat destruction, climate change and other forces.

Sign our petition and tell Gov. Jerry Brown to ban the import and sale of bullfrogs in California.
