INFORMATION

Endosulfan is a deadly poison that has been banned in 60 countries, but not the U.S. This deadly poison is extremely dangerous for frogs, birds and even people who are exposed to it.

Even low doses of endosulfan can be fatal to species like the threatened northern leopard frog, which is already in decline. In humans, endosulfan can cause birth defects and other health risks. In extreme cases, endosulphan exposure can cause unconsciousness and even death.

The U.S. has yet to take endosulfan off the market, but with your help we can change things for northern leopard frogs, farm workers and others threatened by this dangerous pesticide.

Fill out the form below to urge U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson to help protect our health, our environment and our frogs by banning endosulfan. Please hurry -- the deadline for public comments is Monday, June 29th!


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
