Amphibian Conservation 101
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
One of our primary goals is to produce the highest quality amphibian educational materials, and to make it as simple as possible for people to use those materials to teach others about amphibians and the problems amphibians face. So whether you seek fantastic frog slideshows, webinars, posters, fact sheets, or just good ideas, you will find it on the newly re-worked SAVE THE FROGS! Teachers For Frogs Page. These are great materials that anybody can use to teach about amphibians and to spread the word about SAVE THE FROGS! on the 2nd Annual Save The Frogs Day, April 30th, 2010. Enjoy!

Plus, fundraising parties are a fun way to catch up with friends! And they aren't very hard to set up.
