Video: A Brief History of Save The Frogs Day
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
On Save The Frogs Day (April 26th) I gave a webinar to highlight all the amazing events that have taken place on Save The Frogs Days past, and to bring to life what the SAVE THE FROGS! movement is all about. I recorded a video of the webinar and posted it on our YouTube Channel. This is our 50th YouTube video!

More on our lawsuit against San Francisco's Mayor Ed Lee
The City of San Francisco has been draining the Sharp Park Wetlands to create dry land for a publicly-funded, money-losing golf course, and they refuse to conduct an environmental impact report, even though they acknowledge their activities kill endangered California Red-Legged Frogs. So last week SAVE THE FROGS! sued Mayor Edwin Lee and the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department in San Francisco Superior Court.
