Mountain yellow-legged frog identified as one of ten "vanishing species"

A report issued by the Endangered Species Coalition catalogs "ten species our children may never see," including the mountain yellow-legged frog.  In the report, the Coalition states "more than 95 percent of southern Sierra Nevada and Southern California populations have gone extinct, and remaining colonies have only about ten adults."  A number of news outlets covered the release of the report, including the Washington Post and Sierra Sun Times.
