An easy way for you to spread the word about the amphibian extincion crisis is to help us grow the SAVE THE FROGS! Facebook Page. Why do we want a large Facebook Page? A large Facebook Page means more people educated about the amphibian extinction crisis, a larger network of potential volunteers and donors, and more leverage when seeking corporate sponsors.

Please do your best to thoroughly go through each point listed below…it shouldn’t take more than half an hour. Thanks!

Save The Frogs Day – April 29th, 2011
http://savethefrogs.com/day

Frogs are the most threatened group of animals on the planet. Nearly one-third of the world’s 6,468 amphibian species are threatened with extinction, and at least 150 species have already completely disappeared. In an effort to raise awareness of the plight of amphibians, the scientific community has declared April 28th, 2009 the 1st Annual 'Save The Frogs Day'.
