Frog Legs Appetite is driving the species to Extinction

Frogs play a very important role in the ecosystem as insect killer and when they disappear the use of toxic pesticides increases, hence frog Legs trade has direct consequences not only for the frogs themselves, but for biodiversity and ecosystem health, and that's why over 500 researchers, conservationists and vets have warned that the excessive and exploitative of consumption of frog Legs in France is endangering species in Asia and this could lead to irreversible Extinction of the species. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2024/mar/09/france-appetite-for-frogs-legs-endangers-species-in-asia-say-campaigners

              This is alarming! love of frog legs by France should not push these species to extinction. Those legs can be used to enhance healthy ecosystem still by controlling insects.

                The way the legs are harvested is also very cruel-

                    This is shocking! ❌ France's love of frog legs is pushing entire species towards extinction. We need these frogs for healthy ecosystems, they're natural insect control! #SaveTheFrogs
