Why volunteer

By volunteering you will be helping protect frog populations and helping promote a society that respects and appreciateds nature and wildlife. Plus you will acquire valuable professional experience, gain new insights, and likely even feel happier!

"The most profitable time a man devotes to labor is that for which he receives no direct or immediate financial compensation. For it must be remembered that there are two forms of compensation available. One is the wages he receives in money. The other is the skill he attains from his experiences; a form of compensation that often exceeds monetary remuneration, for skill and experience are the worker's most important stock and trade through which he may promote himself to higher pay and greater responsibilities."
-- Napoleon Hill, Author

Easy school project

If you are a student, write an article about frog extinctions (mentioning savethefrogs.com!) for your school newspaper. Talk about frog extinctions on your school's radio station.

Frog Legs In Your Community?

You may not have suspected it, but if you search the web for FROG LEGS & YOUR STATE or CITY you will likely find restaurants and supermarkets in your community that sell frog legs. Call them up, ask to speak to the manager. Inform them that frogs are disappearing and that the frog legs trade is decimating frog populations. Ask them to discontinue sales. Be pleasant. Inform us of the result. Be sure to collect all contact information of the restaurant and the person(s) with whom you spoke.

Who's dissecting frogs in your town?

Compile a list of schools in your area that dissect frogs. Send us the list. Thanks!

“The biggest reason I’ve stayed with Dr. Kriger for so long (since 2008!) is his dedication and passion for this cause. I just knew from the beginning that if anyone was going to get the word out there it would be him and I wanted to help!"
-- Alyson Lee; Volunteer Graphic Designer, Worcester, MA

"I have deep admiration for Kerry and his endeavors. He shows us all that each of us can make a difference, if we try. I consider it a privilege to contribute towards his efforts."
--SAVE THE FROGS! Volunteer Choti Singh

What we expect of volunteers

We are looking for volunteers who are pro-active, motivated, and dedicated. We are looking for reliable people: if you accept a volunteer position, you are expected to complete any volunteer tasks in a timely manner. Please keep that in mind!

Your Time Commitment
If your application is accepted and you are chosen for an official volunteer position, you are expected to volunteer for:
(1) a minimum of four hours per week, and
(2) a six month minimum term
If you cannot make that commitment, please do not apply at this time. If in the future you ever have time and willingness to dedicate 4 hours per week for six months to the frogs, please go ahead and apply then. In the meantime, you can and should still help frogs by following the numerous tips on this page.

Why we only accept applications from those who can commit to volunteering 4 hours per week for 6 months:
(1) It takes time to train volunteers and we need to maximize our investment in you. The longer you save frogs, the more experienced and productive you will become.
(2) Time is short when it comes to stopping amphibian extinctions, we need all the help we can get.
(3) Volunteering for SAVE THE FROGS! is an educational, fun and inspiring experience that we know you will enjoy...you'll thank us for pushing you to fulfill your potential!

If you accept a SAVE THE FROGS! Volunteer position, please:
1- Respond to emails in a timely manner.
2- Complete the tasks you accept in a timely manner or inform us if you are unable to do so.
3- Track your hours and then report your hours to us monthly.
Thank you!
