SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana’s efforts have resulted in a huge victory for the Giant Squeaker Frog (Arthroleptis krokosua). From 2015 through early 2019, SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Co-Founders Dr. Kerry Kriger and Gilbert Adum campaigned for the re-categorization of the Giant Squeaker Frog by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), from Near Threatened to Critically Endangered. Success was achieved in March 2019 with the IUCN officially re-categorizing the frog as Critically Endangered. This new listing will help the Giant Squeaker Frog receive significantly increased protections and will enable conservation groups like SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana to more easily secure funding for conservation programs in and around the frog’s habitat in western Ghana.
