2010 Vancouver Green Olympic

August 1, 2006

In 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic, Alpine skiers may have to make a little detour course because of a tiny, vulnerable frog. The coastal tailed frog, which grows to no more than three centimetres, lives in Boyd’s Creek adjacent to the alpine course in Whistler Mountain.

As Vancouver Olympic Committee aims to build Olympic venues with goals of achieving zero waste, carbon neutral emissions and maximizing the use of so-called green buildings at Olympic venues. It is very interesting to see what kind of solution to be finalized to protect the habitat of this 3 cm long frog, Coastal tailed frog.

Read rest of frog story and the picture also ripped from same article.
