  • Be a Responsible Pet Parent
    Do your research prior to adopting an amphibian or any animal to avoid inadvertently contributing to unsustainable or illegal wildlife trade. Look up the protected status of the species with a simple web search to ensure they are not vulnerable, threatened, or protected. If they are not, acquire them from a reputable vendor, and ask the vendor where the animal came from to ensure they were from a sustainable source. Lastly, ensure you have the knowledge and resources to give them the proper care.
  • Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
    Conserve energy and reduce your use of fossil fuels. Walk, bike, carpool, or take public transit whenever possible.
  • Conserve Water
    Instead of lawns, plant low-water landscaping. Reduce water use inside your home with shorter showers and wash only full loads of laundry and dishes.
  • Reduce Consumption, Recycle, and Keep Trash Out of Nature
    Rethink what you use to produce less trash. Recycle and choose reusable bottles. Keep trash off the street to prevent it from entering natural areas, waterways, and the ocean. Participate in cleanups.
  • Respect Nature
    Stay on designated trails and keep your distance from wildlife. This protects habitats and prevents disturbing animals’ natural behaviors.
  • Become an Advocate
    Learn more about how you can help support local nature organizations, educate others, and contact your political representatives.
