Biraj Shrestha Wins Award To Travel From Nepal To The United Kingdom

Dear Frog Lovers,
Greetings from the Himalayas! It gives me great pleasure to share with you that I have won a Future Leader of Conservation Award and will be participating in the Amphibian Conservation Research Symposium (ACRS) to be held at Canterbury, UK this year from June 23-26. The award funds my travel expenses from Nepal. This will be my second time leaving Nepal (my first international trip was to Indonesia). I will be giving an oral presentation at the conference entitled “Saving Stream Dwelling Frogs (Paha) in the remote mountains of Manaslu Conservation Area, Nepal”.

Protecting the beautiful stream frogs of Manaslu in Nepal’s remote Himalayas

SAVE THE FROGS! thanks our generous donors who helped us raise $1,700 to fund a frog conservation initiative in the remote Himalayas of Nepal. SAVE THE FROGS! Task Force Member Biraj Shrestha returned to the Manaslu Conservation Area in March 2017 for a three week research expedition into some of the world’s most dangerous montane amphibian habitats. The "SAVE MANASLU’S FROGS! Research Expedition" was the first expedition of its kind. Further down this page, you can read about the specifics of the expedition, learn about Manaslu's frog species and meet the expedition team members.

Save The Frogs Day in Manaslu

In order to raise awareness for amphibians, SAVE THE FROGS! Volunteer and Event Organizer Biraj Shrestha organized an amazing Save The Frogs Day in Nepal! Read on to learn how this dedicated frog saver educated and inspired many in his country.

"One of the oldest trekking routes, the ‘Manaslu Circuit’ pulls in large number of visitors (domestic and international) every year to enjoy breathtaking landscapes of the Himalayas, including Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), the 8th highest peak of the world. South of the region starts with an elevation of around 1,500 meters above sea level, giving rise to towering mountains and harboring in between several bio climatic zones. That has been crucial in allowing rich biodiversity of plants and animals to develop. The human civilization is as old as the hills with mixed ethnicity of people having Tibetan origins, Gurungs and Lamas. This is Manaslu Conservation Area that lies north of Gorkha District, western Nepal and has been managed by National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) since 1998."

Testimonials

"I became interested in frogs and amphibians as a child in the 1970's by playing in my garden and meeting them. I'm alarmed by their escalating global decline - and the lack of understanding and interest in our connection to nature - in the desire for economic profitability. I feel very helpless with the big global issues - but feel a part of something with a power for good with SAVE THE FROGS!"
