Save The Frogs Day at Sylvan Heights Bird Park

In North Carolina, the Sylvan Heights Bird Park hosted two frog focused events in April culminating with a Save The Frog Day celebration April 30, 2016. There were interactive games, activities and informational displays creating fun and enjoyable learning experiences while raising awareness of the challenges faced by amphibians around the world. Many participants were unaware of the amphibian population decline but our goal to help educate the public about frogs and frog conservation was successful as over 600 people attended these events.

We are pleased to announce the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Camp Out, which will take place at the Ashton Biological Preserve in northern Florida from April 14th to 16th, 2017! Florida has an incredible array of biodiversity, landscapes and ecosystems, and is home to about 57 known amphibian species, making it a perfect place to hold the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Camp Out. We will have an abundance of opportunities to find and photograph amphibians as we explore beautiful palm savannas, wetlands and pine forests. We hope you can camp out with us!

Save The Frogs Day at Bay Elementary School

Students Saved The Frogs at Bay Elementary School in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida!
"Our school has an area that floods due to heavy rains. There was a drain but it is no longer functional. The area that is currently flooded is 200 feet by 30 feet and 2 feet deep. There are massive schools of tadpoles within this temporary pond. In places, two feet deep by 10' x 2' with thousands and thousands of tadpoles. The water is receding at a rate that will have the area dried up by next week. I sent out a school wide email to "Save the Frogs" at our school. Students netted the tadpoles and put them in 5-gallon pails to move to a nearby pond. It has turned out to be a great teaching moment to introduce vocabulary to the students like; -schools, spawning, life cycle, water cycle, stages of metamorphosis and habitat'." - Bay Elementary School Teacher and Save The Frogs Day Event Orangizer

What a great way to Save The Frogs!

Save The Frogs Day at Zoo Miami

"The docents and Conservation Teen Scientists of Zoo Miami hosted a SAVE THE FROGS! booth at the Party for the Planet Earth Day event at the Zoo. We had all kinds of informational posters, quizzes and interactive games. We put an iPod with frog sounds inside the toad abode so we had froggie music all day long. A very popular draw to our tables is "frog food" and the tadpoles. We did temporary frog tattoos (for donations) - we didn't really raise much money this weekend but we certainly got to raise a lot of awareness. A fun game is our magnetic letter Amphibian Anagram word scramble and a fun activity is our Frog Jump. Everyone loves our little frog and tadpole sock puppets and we enjoy teaching kids to love and appreciate frogs early on. We laminated and cut out frogs to trace and color on a table covered with white paper and we also had a box full of assorted frog coloring pages. We had a great event and plan on doing it again next year!! Thanks for all you are doing to help SAVE THE FROGS!"

You're invited to join SAVE THE FROGS Gainesville as we host Save The Frogs Day, which will take place at the Ashton Biological Preserve in northern Florida on April 29th, 2017!
stf day gainesville
Florida has an incredible array of biodiversity, landscapes and ecosystems, and is home to about 57 known amphibian species, making it a perfect place to hold a Save The Frogs Day event. We will have an abundance of opportunities to find and photograph amphibians as we explore beautiful palm savannas, wetlands and pine forests. We hope you will join us and celebrate amphibians on this amazing day!

What is Save The Frogs Day?
Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, Save The Frogs Day is the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action.

Save The Frogs Day at Ashton Biological Preserve is an opportunity for you to meet with other local frog-lovers! You will learn about amphibian ecology, observe native amphibian species and become inspired to save the frogs! At the end of the event, we will take a short field trip to see frogs in their native habitat. Thank you for joining us!

Why Ashton Biological Preserve?
It's a great place to find frogs! The Preserve’s low areas contain wetlands and sinkholes, and a variety of springs are found in the region due to the presence of the Floridian aquifer running beneath the Brooksville Ridge. Ashton Biological Preserve has permanent and ephemeral water sources on property and is home to breeding populations of gopher frogs (Lithobates capito), Eastern narrowmouth toads (Gastrophryne carolinensis), and pinewoods treefrogs (Hyla femoralis), as well as many other amphibian species.

What should I bring to Save The Frogs Day?
Some snacks and drinks will be provided but we urge everyone to bring a dish as this is a potluck event. Yum!

What should I wear on Save The Frogs Day?
Long-sleeved shirts and trousers are best as it may be a little buggy. Please wear close-toed shoes.

Sorry, this event is 18+
Due to the location of the preserve and for liabilty reasons, we unfortunately can't welcome children to the event. We are so sorry!

How do I get to the Preserve?
Ashton Biological Preserve is about 20 miles outside of Gainesville, FL. The road to Ashton from the main highway is dirt, so it takes about 45 minutes to reach the Preserve. It is advisable to use a vehicle with high-clearance, but if you get stuck... we will pull you out! Also, help the envrionment and carpool with a few friends!

Event: Save The Frogs Day at Ashton Biological Preserve
Address: Ashton Biological Preserve, Archer, FL 32618
Date: April 29th, 2017
Time: 6-9pm

Please spread the word! Thank you for joining us and see you soon on Save The Frogs Day at Ashton Biological Preserve!

Building Wetlands in Elgin, Arizona

Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporters,

I am excited to announce that thanks to 13 generous donors who contributed $1,962 to the SAVE THE FROGS! wetland program, I was able to build three large wetlands in Elgin, AZ in early June 2017. These wetlands are at the Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch of the National Audubon Society. One of the three wetlands already has water in it and we expect the others to fill as soon as the rains come. These wetlands will benefit at least three threatened species: the Chiricahua Leopard Frog (Lithobates chiricahuensis); the Northern Mexican Gartersnake (Thamnophis equesmegalops); and the Desert Pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius).

Save The Frogs Day with the University of Michigan Herpetology Club

"The University of Michigan Herpetology Club put on its third annual Save the Frogs Day celebration this year. On Thursday 4/28, we tabled in the School of Natural Resources and Environment along with Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation (which has lots of herp-related monitoring programs). We sold frog-themed baked goods to raise funds for Save the Frogs.

On Sunday 5/1, we hosted an event in the UM Museum of Natural History, where we had lots of games, crafts, and activities for visitors of all ages. The kids really enjoyed our hands-on frog pond, which included a frog life cycle model. The pond was also filled with large tapioca pearls to simulate amphibian eggs. The kids who visited our table loved to touch the squishy "eggs." We talked to participants about the differences between shelled eggs (like bird eggs) and unshelled eggs, and how the delicate amphibian lifecycle contributes to their sensitivity." - University of Michigan Herpetology Club

Testimonials

"Hi Kerry, thank you so much for a great summer. I also wanted to thank you again for taking extra time to speak with me regarding my environmental goals. Since speaking with you, I have a much clearer trajectory forward and know the next steps I need to take. I cannot thank you enough! Speaking of which, I had an extremely productive and helpful talk with Shannon Curtis (former SAVE THE FROGS! Board Member) this morning. He had a lot of really great thoughts regarding working with the County in one of its environmental departments, and I also really enjoyed talking stormwater with him since that's been a big interest of mine. Best wishes."
