    A lot of the problem chytrid fungus outbreak, the fungus has been around for a long time and has just recently become a major factor, indicating that it and climate change may work hand-in-hand. Amphibians are losing a lot of their habitat due to less water, are more susceptible to a disease which they usually did not have to fear, and rising temperatures. “The Global Amphibian Assessment, published in 2004, found that nearly one-third of the world’s 6,000 or so species of frogs, toads and salamanders face extinction–a figure far greater than that for any other group of animals.” They are also at high risk because they have no hair or feathers, their eggs have no shells, and they must survive on both land and water.
