My Save The Frogs Day plan
Today I will be at Parque Explora, a famous science museum and aquarium in Medellin, Colombia. They have an array of frog activities for kids planned, and I will be educating the kids about Colombian frog conservation. Two nights ago I gave an hour-long presentation in Spanish there; over 125 people attended and it will be aired on three TV stations next week! I also just gave an interview (you can listen to, see below!) that will be aired on Australian radio. Later today I will be camping out 2 hours from the city with local biologists, searching for and photographing poison dart frogs and glass frogs! Please learn all about our activities here in Colombia on our brand new SAVE THE FROGS! Colombia page:

Listen to my Save The Frogs Day interview
I just got interviewed via Skype by Pavan Raj Gowda, 13 years old from Fremont, CA, founder of Green Kids Now, Inc. The interview will be aired on Australian radio, but I wanted to get it to you today, so here's the recording straight off my iPhone. Please be sure to follow us on SoundCloud while you are listening!
