“My name is Angela. I have been fond of amphibians since childhood. I started taking pictures of them about 15 years ago. At the same time I became a volunteer for Dutch amphibian and reptile protection. The pictures are taken in Europe. With my pictures I try to express the beauty of amphibians, so others will love and preserve them too.”

Amphibian populations worldwide are in the midst of a mass extinction crisis, yet most people are completely unaware! We need your help in getting the word out: we encourage all nature lovers to enter the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Photo Contest! The contest will raise awareness of the amphibian extinction problem by getting people involved and interested, and the photos will be used on t-shirts, stickers, books, and in webpages and social media posts to both publicize our cause and raise funds for SAVE THE FROGS! amphibian conservation efforts.
“I love this – the photo contest! Not only will I enter, I’ll promote it amongst other nature photographers I know in Colorado and elsewhere. The $10 entry is low enough to encourage participation with a win-win outcome for the photographer as well as STF! with your 50-50 jackpot split. Such a great idea! — Choti Singh, Colorado, SAVE THE FROGS! Volunteer & Ecotourist
On April 29th, 2017 I went out to snatch the mail. My neighbor, Andrew Marsh, an old mutual acquaintance of mine, was walking past, and I struck up a conversation as a good neighbor does. I had an idea of how amazing the day was going to be already, but little did I know that later that night I was going to be initiated into a clan of rock’n’roll environmentalists. You see, my neighbor Andrew isn’t your ordinary Santa Cruz resident. In fact, Andrew the Wizard, was lead guitarist in a band of anthropomorphic funkadelic superheroes whose mission in life is to save the world’s frogs. How? Namely through raising money and awareness about the increasingly dire plight that frogs face. This group, The Frogman Experience, were to rock the Ocean Street Center for Nonviolence that night, and so Andrew extended the invite.
“There’s a suggested donation,” he said, “but all proceeds go to benefit SAVE THE FROGS!”
