Frog breeding pond

Amphibians are being hit particularly strongly by loss of habitat.  Some species are being threatened with extinction.  The loss of amphibians is sure to have profound effects on many ecosystems including disruption of food chains and nutrient cycling. In order for frogs to breed, they need water, hence the building of a frog breeding pond.  This pond also attracts a range of small wildlife.
