The Survival Of The Earth Depends On Frogs

In 2013, Professor Jean-Marc Hero spoke at TEDx (St. Hilda's School) in Australia to raise awareness of the rapid disappearance of amphibian populations and to inspire people to take action to save frogs from extinction. Professor Hero was an original member of the SAVE THE FROGS! Board of Directors and from 2003-2007 served as SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger's Ph.D. supervisor at Griffith University in Gold Coast, Australia.

"That was one very sobering presentation. I forwarded it to a number of people. This should concern everyone on the planet."

Save The Frogs Day at Currawong Bush Park

On Save The Frogs Day 2016, Leap into Nature held a Save the Frogs Day at Currawong Bush Park in Doncaster East, Melbourne Australia. The event started off with a frog talk and slide presentation, then the participants headed out to a pond to listen and look for frogs. The children were then able to do a range of art and craft activities on frogs. It was a successful day, with parents and children all learning new things about frogs, and that some of them are endangered and need our help. Save The Frogs Day was a great success with children and their parents learning all about the amazing world of frogs!
