You are cordially invited to join SAVE THE FROGS! on a 10-day eco-tour of Belize June 19th through June 28th, 2014! Belize is a wonderful little country located east of Guatemala and nestled beneath the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. Like many countries in Central America, Belize is a hotspot of biodiversity. Belize is home to 37 amphibian species, as well as an array of bats, birds, lizards, corals and other amazing wildlife. The trip will be led by SAVE THE FROGS! Advisory Committee Chairman Michael Starkey and SAVE THE FROGS! Ecologist Kathlyn Franco. We will also be accompanied by Mayan naturalists and field guides. This will be an unforgettable tropical adventure!
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 2nd 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 16th 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.
Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving that happens annually on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We hope you can donate to SAVE THE FROGS! and show your support for the fabulous work done by your favorite charity!
