Join SAVE THE FROGS! in Belize January 2013

Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,

You are cordially invited to join SAVE THE FROGS! on a 10-day eco-tour of Belize January 5th through January 15th, 2013! Belize is a wonderful little country located east of Guatemala and nestled beneath the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Like many countries in Central America, Belize is a hotspot of biodiversity. Belize is home to 37 known amphibian species, as well as an array of bats, birds, lizards, corals and other amazing wildlife. This will be amazing and we hope you can join us!

The trip will be led by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger; SAVE THE FROGS! Advisory Committee Chairman Michael Starkey; and Sacramento City College Professor Dave Wyatt -- who has been leadingĀ Belize eco-toursĀ for 7 years! We will also be accompanied by Mayan naturalists and field guides. Space is limited, so we encourage you to start planning ASAP. Contact starkey@savethefrogs.com with any questions and get all the details at:

I've donated $374 to SAVE THE FROGS this year, can you pitch in too?

That's right, I donate too: I've donated $374 to SAVE THE FROGS thus far in 2012. What's crazy is that I have only received $13,333 in wages this year for all my efforts. I haven't been paid in over 4 months. I'm on track to earn one-fourth the salary of the average Ph.D. in Santa Cruz County. I've dedicated nine years of my life to saving frogs, at a personal expense of hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost wages that I could have earned had I chosen to pursue other forms of employment. I do my job better than anyone on planet Earth, yet it's still incredibly difficult to raise the bare minimum of funds I need to both do my job and survive.

As a personal request, and on behalf of the frogs (who I can assure you are taking a beating!), I strongly encourage you to donate AT LEAST $5 right now, and if you earn more than $100,000 per year, please consider making a $100 donation. We're all in this together. The frogs are depending on you to save them. You are one of the few who knows of their plight, so donating right now is both your privilege and your duty!

Thank you from me, my underpaid staff, all our volunteers, and the 2,000+ amphibian species on the verge of extinction. Nobody does it like SAVE THE FROGS! -- thanks for making our work possible!

Frogs are the most threatened group of animals on the planet: nearly 2,000 of the world's amphibian species are threatened with extinction and at least 150 species have entirely disappeared since 1979. SAVE THE FROGS! is America's first and only public charity dedicated exclusively to amphibian conservation. Your generous financial support makes our work possible!
