Cueter will have plenty of frogs for people to see.

Also on tap is the Seattle Save The Frogs Day 5K Fun Run and Walk, which is intended to raise awareness of the rapid disappearance of frog species in Washington state and worldwide. The Seattle Save The Frogs Day 5K is being coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, a nonprofit organization dedicated to amphibian conservation.

According to Kerry Kriger of Save the Frogs:

Amphibian populations worldwide have been declining at unprecedented rates, and nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared in recent years. Washington’s amphibians are faced with an onslaught of environmental problems, including climate change, infectious diseases, habitat loss, pollution, and invasive species.
