Join SAVE THE FROGS! in Belize July 2013
You are cordially invited to join SAVE THE FROGS! on a 10-day eco-tour of Belize July 11th through July 20th, 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 to learn about the rainforest and tropical wildlife!
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 Biology Professor Dave Wyatt -- who has been leading Belize eco-tours for 7 years! We will also be accompanied by Mayan naturalists and field guides. Space is limited, so we encourage you to register ASAP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-877-75-FROGS with any questions and get all the details at:
Red-Eyed Treefrog (Agalychnis callidryas), the world's most photographed frog.

SAVE THE FROGS! Academy Scholarships Available - Act Fast!
Thanks to the generous support of our donors we have scholarships available to cover all twenty spots in our upcoming SAVE THE FROGS! Academy online classes. In one class, students will promote and coordinate the 5th Annual Save The Frogs Day, the world's largest day of amphibian education. In the other class, students will raise awareness for Fowler's Toads and work to prevent the impending destruction of their habitat at Lake Erie in Ontario, where the government has authorized condominium developers to "damage and destroy" the toad's habitat and to "harm, harass, kill, and collect the toads". Our goal is to prevent this.
If you are university level or beyond and have a strong desire to help amphibians and improve your professional frog-saving skills, please apply immediately for the Academy, as we will be making scholarship decisions around January 26th. Learn more about the Academy, the classes and applications at:
