(WILDLIFE/ANIMAL RESCUE/ANIMAL VIDEOS) Summer is a great time to have a swimming pool–unless you’re one of the many small animals like frogs, mice, and chipmunks possibly living in your backyard. With millions of swimming pools across the country, there’s a lot of potential for little wild lives to be lost. Fortunately, wildlife biologist Rich Mason has created a simple yet ingenious invention called the FrogLog that serves as an animal escape ramp for swimming pools. The FrogLog consists of an inflatable platform with an attached mesh skirt, a weighted pouch that secures the device to the pool’s edge, and a mesh ramp connecting the two ends. Every creature deserves a chance to survive, and the FrogLog is now one more way to make sure that happens. — Global Animal
