In Peru recorded the mass death of frogs

In the river flowing through the southern regions of Peru, were found the bodies of about 10,000 titicacca leptodactylid frogs (Telmatobius culeus). These frogs, found only in lake Titicaca and several nearby lakes on the Altiplano plateau at an altitude of 3810 m above sea level, are on the verge of extinction.

National Directorate of forestry and wildlife, Peru has launched an investigation into the incident. Environmental organizations, meanwhile, argue that the cause of death of amphibians was the pollution of the river.
