missing edible frogs

euro eat frog


Edible frogs are under huge threat as the europeans crave for frog legs on their plates. To satisfy the ever-growing demand, countries like Belgium, France, Holland and the US mass-import edible frogs from southeast Asia. It was estimated that there are over 23 billion frogs being imported into Europe from the year 2000 to 2009. Most of these frogs were imported from Indonesia, this not only threatened the survival of edible frogs, but also disrupted the food chain, which led to the over-growth of mosquitos and other insects.
