“Glass Frogs” Finally Got Protection as an Endangered Species
Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (01-09-2023) #813C: Jeff Flocken, President of the Humane Society International (HSI) reports to Tracie about his recent trip to Panama for the CITES meeting, where decisions are made by multiple countries about what creatures will be put on the endangered species list this year. Jeff discusses the “politics” of elephant tusks and the ivory trade — along with rhino horn and hippo teeth. The big news: Glass Frogs finally made the list on the 3rd try to identify them as endangered — their name indicating that you can see through their abdominal membrane to their inner workings, which Tracie likens to watches with transparent backings.
