A message from 7th grade frog saver Adam Clayton
"Dear Kerry Kriger,
Originally I wanted to thank you for all you have done to save amphibians, but in writing this letter I realized that you have impacted my life on a much more personal level. When I was 7 my favorite animals were frogs. I had pictures of frogs pasted all over my room and my favorite thing to do was to go to my grandparents' house and look for rough skinned newts on a hiking trail there. That's why when I heard about SAVE THE FROGS! and the problems amphibians were facing I was really upset. I cried for hours, cursing big companies for being so careless about the environment. After that day I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up. I set a life goal to become a herpetologist. In the following years I did everything I could to help my favorite animal. With my family's support I started a lemonade stand to raise money that I would donate to your website. I also made posters to put up around my school, started a club and spread the word about the problems frogs faced, to everyone I met. By the time I was 9, I had donated over $400 from fundraisers, selling lemonade and giving away my own money, yet I was not satisfied. I still wanted to be a herpetologist, but I knew it would not be easy. That's why, along with the occasional donation, I started to focus on school, striving for good grades to prepare for high school. Nowadays, I'm still a normal teen. I hang out with friends, and play video games and sports, but unlike most 7th graders, I have a life goal: a dream that inspires me to try my hardest in school and help the environment. I dream that no matter where life takes me, it has taught me to work hard and never give up. A dream you gave me. Which is why, besides all you do to save the frogs, I want to thank you for making me a better person, and if all goes well, maybe someday, I will join you as a real herpetologist.
Adam Clayton, Oregon"

SAVE THE FROGS! at the Chabot Space & Science Center / Oakland Science Fair
On May 21st, SAVE THE FROGS! hosted an info table at the Chabot Space & Science Center for the Oakland Science Fair. We educated lots of elementary school students about frogs, met a lot of teachers and got invited to give a presentation on frog conservation at the Space Center this fall. In 2015 we hope to build two wetlands less than a mile from the Center. Thanks to all our donors for making our educational efforts possible.
