The Kwabeng Chapter of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana takes action
When I visited Ghana in September 2011, there was virtually no environmental education taking place in the country, and certainly none related to frogs. So I am pleased to announce that the Kwabeng Chapter of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana has been conducting educational presentations in schools near critical amphibian habitat (near the Atewa Forest). They give lecture on the importance of frogs and why to save frogs and other creatures in our environment. Other projects we have going on in Ghana right now include restoring the Wewe River, which runs through the KNUST university's campus, and restoring the degraded habitat of the critically endangered Giant Squeaker Frog. Stay tuned for a lot of amazing updates from our volunteers and staff in Ghana! Help support our efforts by ordering yourself a SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana 100% organic cotton t-shirt.
