SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger was interviewed in October 2019 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!
"Dear Dr. Kerry Kriger,
My name is Rose and I am a sixth grade student from New Mexico. This year, we are studying “Pathways To The Future", colleges and our dream career choice. I have always dreamed of becoming a herpetologist. I have always loved frogs. One of the projects I am doing is interviewing a person in our field of interest. I would like to ask you some questions:
SAVE THE FROGS! has been training the next generation of amphibian conservationists since our founding on 2008. When you become a SAVE THE FROGS! Member, you will gain access to our best educational materials, and access to the top minds in the herpetology world. Your membership supports our worldwide efforts on behalf of amphibians, and we appreciate your support and enthusiasm!
You can apply for a SAVE THE FROGS! Scholarship to cover your membership dues if you require financial assistance.
