The SAVE THE FROGS! 90-Day Challenge is the very best online amphibian conservation training available, as you will learn the precise skills that SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger has used over the past decade to grow SAVE THE FROGS! into one of the world’s most recognized and effective environmental organizations.
The first SAVE THE FROGS! 90-Day Challenge starts Sunday May 22, 2016 at 5pm Los Angeles time and ends August 21, 2016. Over the course of these 13 weeks you will learn about amphibian ecology and conservation, environmental law, wetland restoration and construction, invasive species, effective environmental writing and communication, fundraising, campaigning, and much more.
Participants of the 90-Day Challenge will gain skills that will set them apart from the multitude of environmentalists competing for a limited number of jobs and funding opportunities. If you are not an environmental professional, you will gain skills that will enable you to find and succeed in an array of volunteer opportunities. You will make valuable connections with environmental professionals and frog enthusiasts and you will most likely have a lot of fun as well!
All you need to take part is a computer, smartphone or tablet and a solid internet connection, as the course takes place online and the challenges can be completed in your home or your community. You need to be available for live online video conferences Sundays at 5pm Los Angeles time (we understand if you can't attend every week due to scheduling conflicts).
Learn more and sign up no later than Sunday May 22nd at 3pm Los Angeles time.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge and expertise with you during the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! 90-Day Challenge.
SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger designed the curriculum for the 90-Day Challenge in order to teach you the most important skills you need to succeed in an environmental career. These skills are those he has found to be most important for amphibian conservationists based on his thirteen years of full-time experience saving frogs from extinction and building the world's most effective force for amphibian conservation.
When you learn from the best, you become the best. Our instructors have a combined 26 years of amphibian conservation knowledge and have continually demonstrated environmental success and worldwide impact.
The 90-Day Challenge will be led by SAVE THE FROGS! Founder & Executive Director Dr. Kerry Kriger, and SAVE THE FROGS! Ecologists Michael Starkey, Kathlyn Franco and Emily Moskal. We will also bring on guest presenters with expertise in a variety of fields related to the topics covered during the challenge.
