The day Jeff Corwin and Ellen DeGeneres jumped aboard Amphibian Ark.

Finally online you can see the video of Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Corwin talking about Amphibian Ark and The Year of the Frog. It’s the video that really has taken awareness and interest to a new level, just in time. The video is one of many great source videos on the amphibian crisis on Amphibian Ark’s new video page.

Jeff Corwin was huge today for Amphibian Ark. On “Ellen” this afternoon, he showed a Panama Golden Frog — extinct in the wild, but brought to the show courtesy of the St. Louis Zoo — and explained how chytrid fungus is killing off amphibian species.  He encouraged viewers to go to www.amphibianark.org (yes, he spelled out the url!) to learn how to help.  He offered to let Ellen hold the toad, but she said she didn’t want to be responsible for losing “the last frog.” A “golden” moment for the cause.
