"On Earth Day I showed the slideshows from the SAVE THE FROGS! website. The children loved it. They love the Cool Frog Facts and really enjoy seeing real pictures/videos of frogs and amphibians. There is so much learning that is happening. I want to thank you for putting the website together. It is so cool. The children enjoy it, and learn from it."
-- Sharon Bolfing, 4th grade teacher, Texas
Our goal is to provide the highest quality amphibian educational materials, and to make it as simple as possible for an interested person to use those materials to teach others about amphibians and the problems they face. Please enjoy the slideshows, and consider giving a SAVE THE FROGS! presentation on Save The Frogs Day! We'll soon have PDF Guide Sheets to assist your presentation(s). Be sure to sign up for the Save The Frogs Newsletter so you find out when we post them here!
"I've just delivered the power point presentation you sent me in our theatre and it went down a treat! Thanks very much. I gave yourself and save the frogs a good mention at the start.
Everyone really enjoyed the talk and the images and I really felt like I got through to people and have convinced many of them to develop a pond and a wildlife area in their gardens, I always give an advice sheet out at the start of my talks for people to follow if they wish to put in a pond on their land or garden."
-- Phil Lewis, World Museum Liverpool

"Thanks so much for the link to the slides, they were a great help for my presentation. I informed a lot of people on the issue that were actually unaware of how serious it was. I was also able to bring up information for Save the Frogs Day 2011, and provide links to the website. And to top it off, I brought some Atrazine petitions with me and got quite a few signatures, I will be sure to send them back soon."
--Sean Kortis on his presentation to his "Contemporary Environmental Issues and Policy" class at Stony Brook University in New York.

"Kerry, Thank you so much for all you are doing to save frogs. I am a lifelong frog/amphibian enthusiast and was somewhat aware of some of the threats to them, but I am the first to admit that I was not terribly knowledgeable about the critical nature of the threats and dangers they are currently facing nor about ways average citizens can help save them. I was thrilled when I stumbled upon savethefrogs.com because it gave me a starting point to begin educating my young students (and myself) about what we can do to help."
