Great Opportunity to Save Yellow-Legged Frogs
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
The Yellow-Legged Frogs were once the most abundant frogs in California, but have disappeared from over 90% of the lakes they once inhabited, in large part due to the introduction of non-native trout, which are voracious predators of tadpoles.
The National Park Service is currently deciding whether to remove the non-native trout from Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park. They are accepting comments from the public through November 21st.
Click here and send a letter urging the Park Service to remove the non-native trout and save the Yellow-Legged Frogs!
What's next? Next week we'll start our campain to have the California Department of Fish & Game abandon their plans to stock non-native fish in lakes throughout California. This won't be easy though: the California government has been stocking non-native fish for over 80 years and there is a strong fishing lobby that wants the practice to continue!
All donations doubled through Thanksgiving
An anonymous donor has generously offered to match any donation up to $100 that is made to SAVE THE FROGS! between now and Thanksgiving. So please take advantage of this great opportunity and help us save California's critically endangered Yellow-Legged Frogs from predatory non-native trout. We're putting the pressure on the government, but we need your help!
Donate now to help us save California's critically endangered Yellow-Legged Frogs!
Your donation will be matched!
Special Thanks to 'Democracy In Action'
If you just sent the National Park Service the letter urging them to remove non-native trout (which we hope you did!), you'll notice that we've got some new software in place. This is courtesy of Democracy In Action, who recently awarded SAVE THE FROGS! a Green Grant, enabling us to use their amazing campaign/petition software free for a year. So be on the lookout for an array of new campaigns we'll soon be announcing, all of which will be easily found on the savethefrogs.com Take Action page.
