Which BC frogs are nearing extinction?


Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are the source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday.


This issue is their 2,469th and on the cover this week is Earth Day, Mass Extinction: In an epoch defined by humans overtaking nature as the dominant force on Earth, climate change and habitat destruction threaten a vast array of species in BC.
