Eaten, taken for pets, hunted for skin
Africa's Goliath Frog is the biggest frog in the world. With legs stretched out they reach a length of 80cm! They were always popular as food, but in recent times they are often taken as pets and for their skin. Since they have been hunted for so long, their numbers have become half in the past 15 years.

More people are around, they can't live safely...
The increase of people in the Goliath Frog's living space has become a problem. First, the spaces where they can live have become fewer. Also, Goliath Frogs are skilled swimmers and live near rivers. Because of people, the rivers have started to get dirtier, and the frogs are no longer able to live in a safe environment like before.
