How To Achieve Excellence In Your Environmental Pursuits

In September 2003 I flew to Australia to learn everything I could about frogs. I spent hundreds of hours walking up streams in search of frogs. I learned how to find and identify frogs by their calls and color patterns, body shape and habitat preferences. I learned molecular biology and spent hundreds of hours in the laboratory testing nearly 3,000 frogs for disease. I taught calculus, chemistry, ecology and vertebrate biology at my university and I won a large grant from the National Geographic Society to fund my research. I published original scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and received awards for presentations I gave at ecological conferences. In June 2007 I returned to the USA with a doctoral degree and a desire to put my knowledge to use for the betterment of the planet.

First though, thank you for all your support, whether that’s been through donating, volunteering, spreading the word or just improving your own ecological footprint. SAVE THE FROGS! is successful because of the involvement of you and thousands of other frog enthusiasts around the globe.
