Save the Coqui Frog sign now

We are annoyed and indignated at your recent attitude towards the coqui frogs. We are aware of the forms of cruelty you use to exterminate them. Contrary to popular belief, the acid you spread at what you call "a plague" is highly corrosive and the frogs suffer a slow, painful death that may take up to 45 minutes.
We believe the main reasons why you want to get rid of this reptile are shallow and don't justify this barbarism. The chant these frogs produce is beautiful and unique. It may be upsetting in the beginning, but then you eventually get used to it and it becomes part of the natural enviroment. Killing an animal just because you don't like its sound is selfish and inconsiderate. Also, there's no such thing as a shortage of insects, so there's plenty food for both the coqui frog and birds. Many hawaiian birds are fructivorous or vegetarian anyway, so we don't see the relation between insects shortage and birds extintion.
We hope our words are heard and your government and people can learn to love and accept the coqui frog, just like they've learnt to love and accept 90\% of the faunae of your island, that once was as alienated as these reptiles.

    Now if we only could convince the Puerto Rican government to finally do something to protect the Coquis in Puerto Rico. Already 14 of them are in the endangered list, and two of the ones in the list may possibly be extinct.

    Coquis have just as much right to live as humans - whether in Hawai'i or not.

    I'm sorry, but I doubt the Coqui is the one that has been eating all the insects in Hawaii. Why? In case anybody doesn't know, Hawaii happens to have CANE TOADS as well, and those eat ANYTHING, including birds, insects, mice and Coquis. So blaming the ins
