Introducing The Build A Frog Pond Contest!

Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,

Habitat destruction is the number one cause of amphibian extinctions worldwide. Fortunately, homeowners and schools can help create new habitat for frogs! Building a backyard frog pond is a great way to give your local frog populations a boost.

The SAVE THE FROGS! Build A Frog Pond Contest invites schools and homeowners to build frog ponds on their property and document the project and its successes through video, photos and stories, which will be posted online to educate and inspire others to do the same. With your help we can cover the globe with frog habitat and fill the night air with the soothing sounds of frog calls. And of course there are great prizes for the winning school and the winning homeowner!!! The contest closes May 15, 2011, so start digging! Good luck!

Brand New Webpage on Ranaviruses

You may have thought that chytridiomycosis was the only disease amphibians have to worry about...not so! Ranaviruses have been causing amphibian populations trouble for decades. Learn all about Ranaviruses on this brand new SAVE THE FROGS! webpage, created courtesy of Dr. Amanda Duffus.

SAVE THE FROGS! on Martha Stewart Radio

On Save The Frogs Day, I was a guest on Martha Stewart Living Radio (Sirius 112/XM 157). Maggie Mistal, host of “Making a Living with Maggie" interviewed me about ways to focus one's career on a cause or passion. CNN has called Maggie one of the nation's best known career coaches.

Listen to the interview here.
