On April 29th, 2017, at the Museum of Natural Sciences, we organized a herpetology workshop in support to the project SAVE THE FROGS!. At this workshop, we highlighted the importance of the preservation of this group, considering that it is the most threatened for extinction among vertebrate animals. We demystified several popular myths related to these animals. Many people are unfortunately repulsed by these animals, and this workshop stimulated both the knowledge about amphibians and the respect that we must build, given the ecological importance of these animals.

No dia 29 de abril, no Museu de Ciências Naturais da PUC Minas, realizamos uma oficina de herpetologia em apoio ao projeto SAVE THE FROGS!. Nessa oficina, destacamos a importância da preservação desse grupo, tendo em vista que é o mais ameaçado de extinção dentre os vertebrados, além da desmistificação de diversos mitos populares relacionados á esses animais. É perceptível que diversas pessoas possuem repulsa desses animas, e a realização da oficina estimula tanto o conhecimento sobre os mesmos quanto ao respeito que todos devemos construir, tendo em vista a importância ecológica desses animais.

Inspiration

"Never let another's opinion affect you; he cannot tell what you are able to do; he does not know what you can do with your forces. The truth is you do not know yourself until you put yourself to the test. Therefore, how can someone else know? Never let anyone else put a valuation on you."

Testimonials

"Hello, I have been interested in frogs for the last 20 years. They are (a) wonderful animals on their own right, with wonderful behaviors and anatomical specifications; (b) a wonderful tool for education about the importance of ecosystem health to species health and (c) just beautiful. They get kids excited about animals, nature, and science."
