Uncle Julio’s Rio Grande is a chain of 16 upscale Mexican food restaurants located throughout TX, VA, MD, FL, IL and GA. Uncle Julio’s Rio Grande restaurants sell farm-raised bullfrogs from China. These bullfrogs are regularly infected with the deadly chytrid fungus, and are harmful invasive species that eat native frogs, and thus Uncle Julio’s Rio Grande restaurants are engaging in ecologically destructive trade practices.
As Uncle Julio’s corporate headquarters has refused to reply to our emails, voice mails or our three Federal Express letters to them, Save The Frogs will be holding peaceful (but highly visible!) protests in front of their restaurants this Save The Frogs Day, and at as many future dates as it takes for them to remove frog legs from their menus. These will be the first protests against the frog legs trade in the planet’s history.
Please call Uncle Julio’s CEO Todd Conger and tell him how you feel!
