It's not easy being green.

Kermit the Frog is well-known for singing, "It's not easy being green." As we know, it's not easy being green, blue or yellow-banded either. In fact, a rainbow of gorgeous amphibians are quickly fading into extinction. You have a chance to get up close to awesome looking frogs like the blue poison dart frog (shown above) to cool looking salamanders and newts at the Tennessee Aquarium. 2008 has been designated, "The Year of the Frog" by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to raise awareness to the global crisis that is facing amphibians. Kermit has not been singing the blues though. In fact he joined AZA leaders on Capitol Hill recently to urge members of Congress to do all they can to help save disappearing amphibians. See him in action lobbying for his fellow frogs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrEpBJ5nL6E
