They are threatened because of a loss of habitat and pollution. When there is a problem with the balance of an ecosystem, amphibians are the first to show signs of wear and tear. This is why their health is an important indicator of the general health of the ecosystem which they inhabit.
In many areas Chytridiomycosis, a fungus, is leading to the death of amphibians. Where conditions are optimal, like mid-elevation cloud forests, southern United States, and parts of Australia the chytrid is attaching frogs by coating their skin and reducing respiration. Chytrid can kill 60% of species and individuals at a site in just a few months. It is causing huge amphibian declines around the world.
