Frogs and toads are in big trouble across the world because their habitats are disappearing, water is polluted, the climate is changing and because of a disease that stops them being able to breathe through their skin.
See www.savethefrogs.com for more facts, information and pictures.
I am collecting poems for the Save the Frogs website. Already they have 'Musicians for Frogs', 'Lawyers for Frogs' and 'Businesses for Frogs', so we're working towards a 'Poets for Frogs' section too.
Here are some ideas for your own frog or toad poems:
1. Find out about a particular kind of frog or toad
and describe the world from that frog's point of view.
Feel free to include pictures and illustrations too!
Please send your poems by 1st November 2008 to
Or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
