The 9th Annual Save The Frogs Day (April 29th, 2017) was a fantastic day of amphibian education and conservation action, directly reaching over 10,000 participants, with at least 101 events taking place in 22 countries: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brazil, Cameroon, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ghana, India, Italy, Mauritius, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA. Thanks to everyone who made Save The Frogs Day 2017 possible!
Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, Save The Frogs Day is the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action. On this day we encourage the appreciation and celebration of amphibians by people from all walks of life. Only a small proportion of the public is aware that frogs are disappearing, and amphibian conservation efforts will not be successful with an un-informed public. Our goal is to make the amphibian extinction crisis common knowledge, and Save The Frogs Day is our best way to make this happen!
Here are some highlights from the 9th Annual Save The Frogs Day:
SAVE THE FROGS! supporters organized rallies, marches and parades in their neighborhoods to educate their communities about the benefits of frogs in ecosystems.
