Agile Frog - Conservation

Conservation status: Amphibians are the most threatened taxa due to anthropogenic factors such as habitat destruction, environmental contamination and most importantly climate change. They are sensitive to climate change due to their permeable skin as they rely on optimal microclimatic conditions for osmoregulation and respiration (Combes et al., 2018).
