WANTED!
Californians who care about their state's native wildlife.

The California Fish & Game Commission (FGC) holds regular public meetings at which citizens are generally granted two minutes to speak on any relevant environmental topic. As the FGC holds significant power with respect to the continuance of American Bullfrog importations, SAVE THE FROGS! seeks supporters willing to attend upcoming meetings and speak up on behalf of native amphibians. The FGC and the Department of Fish & Wildlife (DFW) have the authority to stop the importations and their own scientists have created a detailed report detailing the numerous harms caused by non-native American Bullfrogs (Rana catesbeiana), yet the DFW continues to issue permits that allow over a million non-native bullfrogs to enter the state each year.

In December 2016, SAVE THE FROGS! along with the Center for Biological Diversity petitioned the state to end the importations. We need your help to speak up in support of the petition!

If you can attend and speak at any of the meetings listed below, please complete the brief Volunteer Application Form at:
www.savethefrogs.com/apply

Be sure to inform us which meeting you could commit to attending.
Thank you for helping SAVE THE FROGS!

Testimonials

"Hi Kerry, thank you so much for a great summer. I also wanted to thank you again for taking extra time to speak with me regarding my environmental goals. Since speaking with you, I have a much clearer trajectory forward and know the next steps I need to take. I cannot thank you enough! Speaking of which, I had an extremely productive and helpful talk with Shannon Curtis (former SAVE THE FROGS! Board Member) this morning. He had a lot of really great thoughts regarding working with the County in one of its environmental departments, and I also really enjoyed talking stormwater with him since that's been a big interest of mine. Best wishes."

Inspiration

"Thought may lead to action of any kind, but whatever the action, it is simply the thought attempting to express itself in visible form. It is evident, therefore, that if we wish desirable conditions, we can afford to entertain only desirable thoughts."
