WEB DESK: Experts in Australia have warned that various species of frogs are on the verge of extinction due to various diseases and climate change.
According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), frogs, including many animals in Australia, are facing serious threats in a few years, which need to be addressed soon.
According to research, a team of scientists has warned Australian authorities that 26 species of frogs will be extinct by 2040, while 4 of them have already become extinct.
Author Dr. Graeme Gillespie said that after years of study, the Northern Australia Department of the Environment has identified endangered species.
Dr Gillespie feared the frog could soon become extinct, like many species of Australian reptiles, mammals, birds and plants, which could harm other parts of the world.
According to Dr. Gillespie, a disease called chytridiomycosis is on the rise in these frogs with skin disease, due to which the names and traces of the first 4 species cannot be found.
However, rapidly changing climate change with the disease is also a threat to these new species, which need to be addressed as soon as possible.
