August 17th, 2013: International Take A Hike Day

Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the goal of the International Take A Hike Day is to get people outside! When people love nature they are much more willing to protect nature. But as habitats get destroyed and technology consumes more of our time, the disconnect between people and nature grows. In the 21st century, making sure we spend time outdoors is more important than ever...plus hiking is enjoyable and healthy! So please mark your calendar for the 1st Annual International Take A Hike Day! All you have to do to take part is go for a hike or spend some time in the great outdoors. You'll reconnect with your roots and remember what is at stake if we don't act quickly to protect nature and wildlife. We encourage all hiking and wildlife groups to arrange hikes on August 17th and spread the word about the International Take A Hike Day. Don't worry if you don't have a local group, just go for a hike by yourself or with some friends and family.

October 12, 2013: International Day of Pesticide Action

Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, the goal of the International Day of Pesticide Action is to raise global awareness of the threats to wildlife and humans caused by society's ever-increasing use of harmful pesticides. There are over 18,000 registered pesticides in the USA, and over a billion kilos of pesticides are sprayed worldwide annually. Pesticides contaminate our tap water and food supplies, poison our streams, and cause health problems for aquatic wildlife as well as farmworkers and millions of humans living near agricultural areas. SAVE THE FROGS! is organizing a rally in Washington, DC to call on the United States government to issue an immediate federal ban on the use and production of Atrazine, one of the world's most harmful pesticides. Please join us in DC or hold an educational event in your school or community!
