The 6th Annual Save The Frogs Day: April 26, 2014
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Save The Frogs Day is the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action. On Save The Frogs Day 2013 our supporters held 270 events in at least 30 countries, directly reaching over 17,000 participants. Please get involved and help spread the word so we can make Save The Frogs Day 2014 even more successful! Only a small proportion of the public is aware that frogs are disappearing, and amphibian conservation efforts will not be successful with an un-informed public. Our goal is to make the amphibian extinction crisis common knowledge, and Save The Frogs Day is our best way to make this happen!

Help us raise $10,000 to fund our worldwide events
Save The Frogs Day is the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action, and it is your generous financial support that makes it all possible! Your tax-deductible contribution will enable us to coordinate Save The Frogs Day and create all the educational materials that we freely provide to students, teachers, scientists and naturalists around the world. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 so that we can provide grants to our most dedicated volunteers who are organizing Save The Frogs Day events in developing countries. Most of these volunteers are undergraduates or graduate students and they require our financial assistance to hold successful events. These volunteers have proven their abilities in past years, they just need our help to fund their events. Please contribute and help ensure we take advantage of this huge volunteer workforce to spread amphibious awarenss to thousands of kids around the world. Thank you for your support! If you donate $50 or more between now and February 13th we will list your name in the Thank You section of the Save The Frogs Day 2014 webpage (unless you request anonymity!). Please donate at:

Save The Frogs Day in Rio Negro, Antioquia, Colombia, 2013
"Hi Kerry, have you ever read a small paperback called, The Man Who Planted Trees? I thought of you when I read this book partly because of how I think of you, one person, caring so strongly about the health of our earth; not just talking about the importance of that but actually doing something everyday to help the planet. I imagine you will do this your entire life - protecting flora and fauna, rebuilding habitats, encouraging education to assist nature and eliminate toxic substances and ruinous human behaviors. Thank you for all that you do and here's to advancing amphibian, reptile and more of Earth's health in 2014!"
