In our global economy, the goods we buy have often traveled some 10,000 miles from raw material to a consumer as a finished product. As the carbon footprint of our commerce increases, amphibians who breathe through their skin as well as their lungs are severely affected by the impact of escalating environmental challenges. The changing composition of our atmosphere, reduced access to fresh water, toxins and pollution in the air and the water are some of the stressors that we put on all inhabitants on Earth, including us humans.
