About the Petition

An estimated 3 million nonnative bullfrogs are imported to California every year. Beyond spreading potentially lethal diseases such as chytrid fungus, these invasive bullfrogs are putting the survival of endangered amphibians at risk. Bullfrogs are responsible for the deterioration of more than a dozen North American amphibian species. 

Stand with organizations such as the Center for Biological Diversity and Save the Frogs, and demand a ban on the importation of bullfrogs to California.

To: Gov. Brown

We, the undersigned, are concerned about the importation of bullfrogs to California. Bullfrogs are threatening the populations of the endangered tiger salamander and the California red-legged frog. In 2013, Santa Cruz, Calif., became the first U.S. city to ban the importation, sale, possession, and release of the American bullfrog. It’s time for the rest of California to take action. 

I stand with organizations such as the Center for Biological Diversity and Save the Frogs in demanding a ban on the importation of bullfrogs to California.
