Save The Frogs Day 2017 at KNUST in Kumasi, Ghana

The SAVE THE FROGS! KNUST Chapter conducted habitat restoration activities at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Technology campus’ Wewe River on Saturday, May 13, 2017, in commemoration of the 9th Annual Save The Frogs Day, the world’s largest day for amphibian conservation events. Fifty chapter members took part in the celebration, including the President of the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources Students Association (Mr. Dwumah Kwaku Afrifa). Participants removed invasive weeds such as Devil Weed (Chromolaena odorata), which is a major threat to amphibian survival. They also planted 150 seedlings of two carefully selected tree species: the fungi and insect resistant Kusia (Nauclea diderrichii) and Militia (Millettia thonningii), known for its soil conservation and erosion control properties. Additionally, Prince Adu-Tutu and Victor Adjei, President and Editor-in-Chief of the Chapter respectively, trained participants in amphibian monitoring and ecological data collection protocols. This newly acquired knowledge helps Chapter members to effectively monitor and evaluate the impact of the restoration activities on local amphibian populations.

Testimonials

"I am a former Herpetology Keeper's Assistant, and an avid nature and wildlife photography buff. I love frogs because…well, heck, how can one NOT love frogs? They have cute expressive faces, they sing into the night, and they eat lots of insects, thus helping to control the population of pests. They are also (and most unfortunately) a visual representation of the damage we are doing to the natural environment, and to the planet as a whole. They are our modern day canary in a coal mine. We would do well to heed their warning…"
