The SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition

In September 2016, SAVE THE FROGS! will lead an international team of 18 amphibian biologists and frog enthusiasts on the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition. The mission of the expedition is to protect Ghana's amphibian populations, empower the next generation of Ghanaian frog conservationists, and expand the international network of environmentalists interested in protecting West Africa's endangered amphibians and ecosystems.

The SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition was a huge success!

Travel to Africa with SAVE THE FROGS!

In September 2011 I traveled to Ghana with a small goal: give presentations in schools. That trip resulted in the formation of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana, which has become the most active international branch of SAVE THE FROGS! and has inspired thousands of Africans and people around the globe to take action for amphibians.

In September 2016 I will return to Ghana to lead the SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition -- and you are invited to join me. Our goal will be to protect Ghana’s amphibian populations, empower the next generation of Ghanaian frog conservationists, and expand the international network of environmentalists interested in protecting West Africa’s endangered amphibians and ecosystems.

We will be joined by 16 environmental professionals and frog enthusiasts and travel Ghana for 17 days:
(1) Conducting educational programs;
(2) Searching for endangered rainforest frogs;
(3) Restoring habitat for endangered amphibians;
(4) Exchanging knowledge with Ghanaian biologists; and
(5) Working to improve and accelerate amphibian conservation efforts in Ghana.

If you are interested in traveling to Africa with SAVE THE FROGS! for this once in a lifetime experience, please download and read through the Expedition Summary.

"I got an e-mail talking about the Ghana trip in September and it sounds like an amazing experience." 

— Jacqueline

The 2016 SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition will create a stronger SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana and will broaden Ghana’s base of amphibian expertise, ultimately resulting in healthier frog populations and vibrant human communities living in harmony with their natural surroundings. I am extremely confident that our 18-member SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition Team, which will combine decades of amphibian conservation experience into one cohesive group with a shared mission, will be able to produce tangible results for Ghana's amphibians on a scale never before encountered.

In my travels to over 50 countries around the world, I have never been anywhere more in need of environmental assistance than Ghana; and I have never been anywhere that more wholeheartedly welcomes the SAVE THE FROGS! message.

For anyone who has ever wanted to make a positive social and/or environmental impact, this is one of the greatest opportunities you will ever have.

SAVE THE FROGS! Expedition to Ghana: Announcement

Since 2011, SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana has been working diligently to protect the country’s rainforests and endangered frogs. Ghana’s frogs need our help, and our friends in Ghana are hard at work, and now YOU have an opportunity to help them both. SAVE THE FROGS! is leading a 17 day expedition to Ghana that will include giving educational presentations, distributing frog educational materials, raising national awareness for the need to create the Atewa Hills National Park, and we will visit many beautiful places and see some amazing frogs!

We will travel all over Ghana educating kids, undergraduates and tribal leaders about the importance of protecting Ghana's frogs, which are are under serious threat from habitat destruction, pesticides and over-harvesting for the frog meat trade. It is truly an exciting effort to help protect these amazing animals and you will directly help us grow Ghana’s network of students, academics and biologists interested in amphibian conservation efforts. It will be an adventure and an opportunity of a lifetime to help protect some of the planet's most threatened animals and ecosystems.
