The Peruvian environmental agency is investigating the deaths of about 10,000 frogs, whose bodies have been found in the river in the south of the country. A local campaign group says pollution in the River Coata is to blame for the deaths.

The Titicaca water frogs are an endangered species that lives exclusively in the huge freshwater lake shared by Peru and Bolivia and its tributaries. The number of residents around South America's largest lake has increased sharply in the past two decades, while the number of frogs there is estimated to have declined by 80%. Residents say the government has done too little to deal with the impact of humans in the area. They are calling for a sewage treatment plant to be built near the regional capital, Puno.
