Save The Frogs Day 2017 in São Paulo, Brazil

Brazil is home to at least 1,036 known amphibian species -- more than any other country. At least 15 species have gone extinct in recent decades; our goal this Save The Frogs Day is to educate the local community about amphibians so that we can prevent further extinctions.

Under the banner of SAVE THE FROGS! Brazil, SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger along with Professor Felipe Toledo and 13 undergraduate and graduate students from the Amphibians Natural History Lab at the State University of Campinas in São Paulo will spend April 26th through 29th educating schoolchildren, university students, and community members about the importance of amphibians and ways to protect them.

An Amphibious Omen My First Night In Brazil

Ola from Belo Horizonte, Brazil!

I arrived last night in Brazil and I met such an amazing toad that I decided to send you photos right away and tell you why I am in Brazil.

Brazil is home to 1,036 known amphibian species -- 14% of the world's amphibian biodiversity! That's more than any other country on the planet. Brazil is also home to the Atlantic Rainforest and the majority of the Amazon Basin — both threatened by rampant environmental destruction. And Brazil has many amphibian biologists interested in SAVE THE FROGS! and our methods of translating science into concrete actions for the betterment of amphibians and humans. So Brazil is an extremely important place for amphibian conservation and for launching SAVE THE FROGS! activities.

This beautiful toad is Rhinella icterica, whose indigenous name is Cururu, which refers to its melodious call.
