Leap Year

Gl_02 Lions and sharks get all the crowds at animal parks--the ornate horned frog, not so much. That might change this year as zoos and aquariums open amphibian exhibits to aid in the creatures' very survival. Disappearing forests, rising temperatures, and a nasty fungus have precipitated a population crash among amphibians, prompting the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to fashion itself a Noah's ark and declare 2008 the "Year of the Frog." To find an exhibit near you, visit aza.org/yearofthefrog.
