SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger was recently interviewed by a young frog enthusiast about preparing for a career in herpetology (the study of amphibians and/or reptiles). So as to assist anyone looking to achieve success in their herpetological pursuits, we have posted the interview here. We hope you find it useful!
The major objective of this program was to explore the status of frogs in and around the ponds of Kathmandu valley. Our team of three members surveyed around 20 ponds of Kathamandu valley and identified three species of frogs and toads (Duttaphrynus stomaticus, Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis, and Hoplobatrachus tigerinus).
In September 2021, a worldwide team of amphibian biologists will spend three weeks in Ghana assisting the SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana team in their efforts to educate Ghanaians about the country’s amphibians, and to protect some of the world’s most endangered frog species. SAVE THE FROGS! will incorporate a 12-day/11-night ecotour into the Expedition so that adventurous frog lovers can experience the amazing Ghanaian wildlife; meet hundreds of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana volunteers, supporters and staff; and have a thoroughly unforgettable travel experience.
