Frogs: the Thin Green Line

Following on from my post about bio-artist Brandon Ballengée, and his work on amphibian deformities – I happened to click on Animal Inventory yesterday, where I read about a new film by Allison Argo. Some years ago, Allison made a film on declining frog populations, but is now so alarmed at the current deteriorating situation that she felt moved to make this new one for PBS.

There is a lot of fascinating information on the PBS site, including Allison’s complete film divided into a number of parts. (Click on Video: ‘full Episode’  on PBS’s right-hand side bar).

Meanwhile, here is a taster, on how ‘Frogs: the Thin Green Line’  was made: 

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.

    Thanks for providing more information and the PBS link. How awful that it’s a fungus (chytrid) that’s causing much of the problem. Apparently it’s already made its way to North America 😦

    Frogs eat so many insects that I shudder to think of their absence from the ecosystem around my home.
