In recent years, many frog species around the world have declined in numbers or even gone extinct due to changes in their environment. These population declines and extinctions have serious consequences for the ecosystems in which frogs live; for example, frogs help play a role in protecting humans by eating disease-carrying insects. Several methods have been proposed to solve the problem of declining frog populations.
First, frogs are being harmed by pesticides, which are chemicals used to prevent insects from damaging farm crops such as corn and sugarcane. Pesticides often spread from farmland into neighboring frog habitats. Once pesticides enter a frog’s body, they attack the nervous system, leading to severe breathing problems. If laws prohibited the farmers from using harmful pesticides near sensitive frog populations, it would significantly reduce the harm pesticides cause to frogs.
A second major factor in frog population decline is a fungus that has spread around the world with deadly effect. The fungus causes thickening of the skin, and since frogs use their skin to absorb water, infected frogs die of dehydration. Recently, researchers have discovered several ways to treat or prevent infection, including antifungal medication and treatments that kill the fungus with heat. Those treatments, if applied on a large scale, would protect sensitive frog populations from infection.
Third, in a great many cases, frog populations are in decline simply because their natural habitats are threatened. Since most frog species lay their eggs in water, they are dependent on water and wetland habitats. Many such habitats are threatened by human activities, including excessive water use or the draining of wetlands to make them suitable for development. If key water habitats such as lakes and marshes were better protected from excessive water use and development, many frog sp

The article proposes methods to solve the problem of declining frog populations. However, the professor says that these methods are not practical.
First, the article explains that the pesticides harm frogs population after attacking their nervous system, so if the laws prohibit the farmers from using them near sensitive frogs population, it would decrease the harm to frogs. In contrast, the professor says that prohibiting the use of the pecticide is not economically practicle, and it will cause sever disadvantage to the farmers because it will affect their crops.
Second, according to the article, the skin fungus is a major factor in frog population decline. applying antifungal medication in a large skill will protect frog populations from this infection. In response, the professor disagrees with this method. antifungal medication must be individually applied which is very defficalt and expensive. In addition to that, the medication must be applied again and again which make this method complicated.
Third, the article suggests that protecting the water habitats such as lakes from excessive use and development will help many frog species to recover. according to the professor, the global warming is the reason that the water habitats are threatened, so protecting the water from the excessive use will not help in preventing the disappearing of the water habitats which in turn will not help in letting frog populations to recover.
