Cloud forests are truly fascinating ecosystems that contain rich biodiversity and amphibian species found nowhere else in the world. This year during the SAVE THE FROGS! Ecuador Ecotour we will spend three nights in the remarkable cloud forest ecosystem of the Mindo Valley. The Mindo Valley is not just beautiful and pristine, but its history contains a unique story of conservation, ecotourism, and sustainable development.

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.
