Help Save Endangered Red-Legged Frogs: Marin County

Please join SAVE THE FROGS! in San Rafael, California on Thursday April 16th, 2015 and speak up on behalf of endangered California Red-Legged Frogs, our official state amphibian! The City of San Francisco has applied for a permit to dredge and drain the Sharp Park Wetlands. Their goal is to create dry land for a publicly-funded, money-losing golf course. Our goal is to stop them! The City’s draining activities kill the Red-Legged Frogs as well as the endangered San Francisco Garter Snakes.

Tell the City of San Francisco to Stop Killing California Red-Legged Frogs

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently took actions to approve a long term management plan that includes spending taxpayer dollars to drain the Sharp Park Wetlands. The City of San Francisco has a documented history of harming, killing and harassing federally protected California Red-Legged Frogs (Rana draytonii) when they drain this rare wetland ecosystem. Their reason to drain the wetlands: to create dry land for a money-losing golf course.

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."
