On September 17th, 2016, SAVE THE FROGS! Buenos Aires took part in the 1st Census and Cleanup of the Costanera Norte Ecological Reserve (RECN) as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup. SAVE THE FROGS! volunteers from the Buenos Aires community helped in the census and helped to clean part of the Rio de la Plata’s estuary coastline and the reserve’s wetland. We thank Grupo de Educación y Conservación Ambiental FCEyN for inviting us. We are really happy for this chance to help the reserve’s environment and all the amphibians that inhabit it! Working together we can improve the world we live in and save the frogs!
