Urge the Peruvian Government to Crack Down on People Blending Frogs for Health Drinks

  • by: Georgina B.

Please share this petition widely to being bring pressure on the Peruvian government to protect frogs from being blended to make health drinks.

In a disturbing report by BBC News Magazine, frogs in Peru - including species that are listed as endangered - are blended (live in some instances) to make a drink that is deemed as a treatment for various diseases.

In Peru it is illegal to profit from wildlife, however, the trade in frogs for ‘health’ drinks continues, threatening some species with extinction.

Threats to Peru's wildlife are immense - deforestation, over-hunting and climate change have left their mark - making drinks with endangered frogs adds to an already acute conservation situation.

Frogs deserve so much better. Will you join me in urging the government of Peru to crack down on the trade in live frogs through education, monitoring and tougher penalties for those caught?

Please sign and share the petition.
