Why We Must SAVE THE FROGS!

Frogs are an integral part of the food web

Tadpoles keep waterways clean by feeding on algae. Adult frogs eat large quantities of insects, including disease vectors that can transmit fatal illnesses to humans (i.e. mosquitoes/malaria). Frogs also serve as an important food source to a diverse array of predators, including dragonflies, fish, snakes, birds, beetles, centipedes and even monkeys. Thus, the disappearance of frog populations disturbs an intricate food web, and results in negative impacts that cascade through the ecosystem.

“Insect masses like fireworks explode.
Dengue, Malaria, West Nile Virus:
Discomfort, despair will fill your abode.
This is what your life will be without us.”
Frog Poetry by Michael Dutton

SAVE THE FROGS! Revenues: 2008-2015

SAVE THE FROGS! accomplishes an incredible amount on a very small budget: on average our annual revenues are less than one thousandth of what The Big Guys bring in each year. While it is fabulous that SAVE THE FROGS! accomplishes so much with every dollar we raise, we are limited by our total revenues, which from 2008-2015 averaged only $118,847 per year.
