Introduction

Donate Now!SAVE THE FROGS! is a worldwide movement dedicated to protecting the world's rapidly disappearing amphibian species. Our mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. Our vision is a world in which not a single amphibian species is threatened with extinction.

Founded in May 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! is America's first and only public charity dedicated exclusively to amphibian conservation. SAVE THE FROGS! builds wetlands; plants trees in degraded amphibian habitat; provides free educational resources to thousands of schools; fights the pesticide companies; sues environmentally irresponsible government agencies and lobbies for legislation to protect amphibians and humans. Thanks to all our donors, members, volunteers and supporters for making our worldwide frog-saving efforts possible!

What We Do

Since 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! scientists and volunteers have held over 1,300 educational events in 59 countries to educate people about the plight of frogs and teach them ways to protect amphibians. SAVE THE FROGS! has held protests at government agencies to ban harmful pesticides and to protect wetlands; restored habitat for endangered amphibians; gotten frog legs out of 77 supermarkets and two restaurants; ended frog dissections at 18 schools; educated over two million website visitors through our 300+ page website; and stopped the construction of a 12-story condominium complex that was planned to be built on endangered toad habitat. SAVE THE FROGS! creates educational materials and provides inspiration and training to volunteers around the world to empower them to go into their communities and conduct activities that benefit amphibians. To ensure the growth of the amphibian conservation movement, SAVE THE FROGS! has awarded over $24,000 in grants to conservationists in 11 countries. SAVE THE FROGS! passed successful legislation designating the California Red-Legged Frog as California's official state amphibian and we regularly meet with politicians to educate them about a variety of issues that impact frog populations. In October 2014, SAVE THE FROGS! initiated a campaign to Re-Frog America by building 1,000 wetlands over the next 10 years.

With your involvement and your financial support, we are 100% positive we can SAVE THE FROGS! Please help us protect amphibian populations by placing a tax-deductible donation to SAVE THE FROGS! today: we do not receive government funding...our success depends on you!

"What a fantastic organization! Invaluable work to protect amphibians and their habitats, thus protecting other species inhabiting the same habitats."

SAVE THE FROGS! Current Projects

In 2015, SAVE THE FROGS! will be focusing on:

-- Re-Frogging America by building 1,000 wetlands over the next 10 years.

-- Coordinating the 7th Annual Save The Frogs Day (April 25th, 2014), the world's largest day of amphibian education.

-- Stopping the annual importation into California of nearly three million non-native American Bullfrogs, which eat our native frogs and spread diseases. We are currently meeting with politicians and lobbying for effective legislation.

-- Spreading our frog conservation programs across Ghana, Colombia, Bangladesh, Mexico and beyond.

-- Protecting San Francisco's Sharp Park Wetlands. We have recently filed a lawsuit against the City of San Francisco for draining the wetlands without having conducted an environmental impact report.

-- Permeating schools and society at large with amphibian education, and drastically increasing the number of people that care about and protect frogs.

Thank you again for your financial support, which makes all this possible!

The world before SAVE THE FROGS!

Prior to the formation of SAVE THE FROGS! in 2008, there was virtually no public education taking place regarding the worldwide disappearance of amphibians. We are honored to have your support on our mission to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife!
