Save The Frogs Wins $5,000 Grant
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Helen and Allan Ridley Charitable Trust, SAVE THE FROGS! is educating thousands of San Francisco students about the importance of amphibians! Through the San Francisco Tadpole Headstart Program, which is led by SAVE THE FROGS! and our partner Tree Frog Treks, we have already given 21 free presentations on amphibian conservation to nearly 2,100 San Francisco students. Tree Frog Treks compliments the presentations by bringing live native San Francisco tadpoles into classrooms to teach students about metamorphosis and threats to local frogs. Our goal is to get San Francisco kids excited about frogs and interested in protecting them. You can learn more about the San Francisco Tadpole Headstart Program at:

SAVE THE FROGS! on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro
Congratulations and thanks to SAVE THE FROGS! Member Mark Harri, who recently took the SAVE THE FROGS! message to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro (5,895m), the highest point in Africa. Mark also collected $300 in donations for SAVE THE FROGS!!

"My wife Sarah and I are now back from our Tanzania trip after successfully summiting Little Meru (3820m), Meru (Socialist Peak 4562m) and the big one Kilimanjaro (Uhuru Peak 5895m)! I can certainly say that it`s been the most tiring trip that we've ever undertaken, but despite bad weather on our Kili summit day we were over the moon to reach the Roof of Africa, and get the STF flag proudly displayed on the summit. We had 7 other clients in our group, plus all the crew, not to mention all the other hikers we crossed along the route and at the summit, so hopefully they all noticed my STF flag, bottle and the picture on my rucksack. We feel great about getting the STF message out there and laying down the gauntlet for any fellow supporters to beat us by getting their flag to a higher place!" -- Mark Harris

Nobody saves the frogs like we do. Thanks for making our work possible by placing the most generous contribution you can afford. Yes, it's tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law!
