Please read on to learn how you can book a presentation and have a SAVE THE FROGS! ecologist visit your school, office or community group.
“Thank you for taking your time out to visit our class today. The kids were super excited even before your presentation and even more excited afterward. You should have been here with us after lunch; they can’t stop talking about frogs. You were enthusiastic and passionate about the topic and it shows. And thank you for being so patient with the kids, answering all their questions and acknowledging all their comments.”

When we were kids, my brother and I used to sneak frogs into the house to play with them, in all secrecy and unknown to our parents. At some point, we even raised one from barely jumping to fully grown adult. Every weekend, we would stay over at my grandmother’s place situated just next to a stream and at night we would fall asleep to the sound of frogs croaking in harmony. But I must say that thanks to SAVE THE FROGS! – an organization I got to know through an online poetry contest I entered back in 2011 – I keep on learning amazing frog facts that have not only made me further understand those little jumping creatures, but that have as well, made me appreciate and acknowledge their importance in the sustainability of the ecosystem, for the survival of mankind globally, and especially in my tropical island, Mauritius.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently took actions to approve a long term management plan that includes spending taxpayer dollars to drain the Sharp Park Wetlands. The City of San Francisco has a documented history of harming, killing and harassing federally protected California Red-Legged Frogs (Rana draytonii) when they drain this rare wetland ecosystem. Their reason to drain the wetlands: to create dry land for a money-losing golf course.
