Good Bye Little Friends

Last spring, the first reports came out on what was happening in the Cloud Forests in Costa Rica . If you or I walked into them we wouldn't know anything was amiss. But subtle changes have already wiped out dozens of it's residents. This post is prompted by this weeks Newsweek story :

Why the Frogs Are Dying
Climate change is no longer merely a matter of numbers from a computer model. With startling swiftness, it is reordering the natural world.

From the story ....... A study by 75 scientists published earlier this year in the journal Nature estimated that two thirds of the 110 known species of harlequins throughout Central and South America have vanished. And that may be just the beginning.

Like I said ... Good Bye Little Friends
