Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the 5th Annual Save The Frogs Day (April 27, 2013) was the largest day of amphibian education and conservation action in the planet's history. Over 269 events took place in at least 28 countries: Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Colombia, Dominica, Hungary, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Israel, Italy, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the USA. On behalf of our worldwide staff, volunteers, members and donors, thanks to all who took part in Save The Frogs Day activities!
SAVE THE FROGS! is the world's leading amphibian conservation organization. Our mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. We work in California, across the USA, and around the world to prevent the extinction of amphibians, and to create a better planet for humans and wildlife.
Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide and nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. Up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1979. Frogs and other amphibians face an array of threats from climate change to habitat destruction; pesticide use; over-collection for frog legs and dissections; invasive species; and infectious diseases spread by human activity. Frogs eat mosquitoes; provide us with medical advances; serve as food for birds, fish and monkeys; and their tadpoles filter our drinking water. Plus frogs look and sound cool, and kids love them -- so there are lots of reasons to save the frogs!
Founded by Dr. Kerry Kriger in 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity and donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
