SAVE THE FROGS! Task Force Member Biraj Shrestha announces his award:
“FROGS are considered as the messengers of good fortune in Zen philosophy and I couldn’t agree more! When I became jobless in 2015, I had plenty of time to ponder over what I actually loved to do rather than whom I am pleasing for with the works I had little interest on. I sat back, contemplated on what I could do about what I loved the most. Yes, I love FROGS! I began writing and developed research and conservation proposals which were later successful from The Rufford Foundations, UK, The Pollination Project, SAVETHEFROGS! USA. I did work hard, had life and death experience during one of my field works and that was in the year 2016. With waves of support from frog loving people around the world, I had no remorse of what I actually started out and there was no turning back.

Hence, I am now writing to share one more good news with you all that I have recently been successful to achieve the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund which I had applied in last February 2017 for the project “Study of the Data Deficient Rara Lake Frogs in mid western Nepal”. The MBZ fund has agreed to provide partial fund of $2,500 for the project and this is the first time that MBZ fund has actually awarded research fund for amphibians in Nepal. With this, I hope to push my amphibian research and conservation endeavor further and help frogs for a better place where humans learn to respect them.”

“I want you to know that I admire and am so impressed with your energy, determination, your goals, and your devotion to these wonderful creatures who have not had the spotlight shown on then until you came along!  I am very impressed that you were able to learn Portuguese so quickly,  and speak to the University students for an hour in their language! I read all of your e-mails.”

"Before any environment, successful or otherwise, can be created, action of some kind is necessary, and before any action is possible, there must be thought of some kind, either conscious or unconscious, and as thought is a product of mind, it becomes evident that Mind is the creative centre from which all activities proceed."
