Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Please join me online to learn all about frog conservation in California! On Wednesday September 25th from 11am-12pm San Francisco time, I will be joined by Wild Equity Institute Executive Director Brent Plater, who will discuss the city of San Francisco's illegal killing of endangered California Red-Legged frogs at Sharp Park. And SAVE THE FROGS! Advisory Committee Member Chris Berry will update you on our efforts to stop the importation of non-native American Bullfrogs into California, and provide ideas on how you can help. We welcome your questions, so join us online!
Bullfrogs are being imported into California by the millions each year. They spread diseases and eat native frogs. The California Department of Fish & Game refuses to stop the importations even as they acknowledge the threat caused by the bullfrogs.
