Help Save Amphibians From Deadly Pesticide

Bookmark and Share

This spring's "Save the Frogs Day" may be over, but frogs — and other amphibians seriously endangered by pesticides — need our help every day. Join the Center for Biological Diversity in calling on the EPA to ban atrazine, a pesticide highly toxic to frogs and other wildlife.

Atrazine is the most commonly used herbicide in the United States. Recent research shows that atrazine is an endocrine disruptor that chemically castrates and feminizes male frogs at concentrations 30 times lower than levels allowed by the EPA.

Please use the form below to tell the EPA to ban atrazine, or at least reevaluate the chemical based on recent studies demonstrating significant human and wildlife health concerns. Act today.
