This is the third in a series of articles about SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger's 2017 visit to Brazil. You can read about Dr. Kriger's amphibious omen here and read about Dr. Kriger's first presentation in Portuguese here.

SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger visited the Maple Bear Canadian School in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, on March 30th, 2017 to teach amphibian ecology and conservation to 1st and 6th graders. Dr. Kriger discussed amphibian natural history, adaptations, threats to frogs and ways to improve one's ecological footprint. The Maple Bear Canadian School is a private school where half of the classes take place in English and half in Portuguese. All of the students -- including the six-year olds -- were bilingual.
