SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana has secured a building and work is underway for the construction of West Africa’s first amphibian conservation education centre. It is strategically located in the home region of Ghana's flagship Giant Squeaker Frog, thus, dubbed the "Sui Amphibian Conservation Education Centre (SACEC)". Funded by Whitley Fund for Nature, it's a three room building with an infusion of both modern and traditional architecture, comprising a library and a computer/technology centre. With the support of over 50 daily local volunteers including women groups, the building will be completed and commissioned on the 5th birthday of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana (22nd September 2016).Arthroleptis krokosua juvenile

The commissioning of SACEC will be broadcast by Germany’s biggest media house, DW-TV at a grand durbar of dignitaries including SAVE THE FROGS! founder, Dr. Kerry Kriger and other staff, politicians, educationists, conservationists, traditional leaders, and local people. All frog and nature lovers are also invited to be part of this historic event. Together, we can save the frogs, and save the world!

"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…"
