"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

"I live with four other people in a co-op in Memphis called the Frog House. My roommates and I are currently planning our backyard frog pond project. It all started with someone suggesting we buy a pet frog, and after talk and research we found that the best way to have frogs at our house was to create a habitat for them outdoors. It is my hope that, even in a small way, we can help stabilize the frog populations of our area, which may help bring about a halt to the frightening rates of many species decline and extinction."

Inspiration

"The road to learning is a royal one; the road that enables the student to expand his intellect and add every day to his stock of knowledge, until, in the pleasant process of intellectual growth, he is able to solve the most profound problems, to count the stars, to analyze every atom of the globe, and to measure the firmament—this is a regal highway, and it is the only road worth traveling."
