Frog habitat is declining all over the world due to the encroachment of development. As the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems, wetlands are teeming with life. In addition to being an irreplaceable habitat, wetlands provide flood control, water purification, and shoreline stability. A rare Knysna Banana Frog and a Micropholis, a long extinct ancestor, witness what time it is, the draining of the hour glass, and wait for the inevitable turning of the tides.
