Have Michael G. Starkey speak at your university, school, or public interest group
SAVE THE FROGS! Ecologist Michael Starkey is available to give live presentations to your school or organization, in-person or via Skype. Mr. Starkey explains why frogs are under threat and informs the audience about how we as a society can help out amphibians around the globe. The presentation features many of Mr. Starkey's photos of amphibians from around the world, and there will be a question and answer session following the presentation. These PowerPoint presentations usually run between 30-45 minutes. At our talks we like to have a table set up where before and after the presentation, we can offer the audience relevant educational materials, collect petition signatures for our campaigns, and sell eco-friendly merchandise to help fund our efforts.

"You are not a victim of your circumstance. You are a product of your effort."

Eric Thomas

Testimonials

"I grew up in the backwoods of Louisiana. As a child, my grandmother used to tell me, "you will have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince." I would run around kissing frogs and she would laugh. She passed away many years ago. Frogs remind me of her. Throughout my life, frogs have had a symbolic meaning to me of change, hope, love, and home. Now that I moved back to Louisiana, I have a pond in my back yard so that I can hear the frogs at night. I am saddened by the fact that the tree frog population is dwindling. I am very environmentally conscious and try to keep my yard full of indigenous plants to help the local ecosystem."
