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."

Inspiration

"To follow, under all circumstances, the highest promptings within you; to be always true to the divine self; to rely upon the inward light, the inward voice, and to pursue your purpose with a fearless and restful heart, believing that the future will yield unto you the meed of every thought and effort; knowing that the laws of the universe can never fail, and that your own will come back to you with mathematical exactitude, this is faith and the living of faith."
