Since 2011, SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana has been working diligently to protect the country’s rainforests and endangered frogs. Ghana’s frogs need our help, and our friends in Ghana are hard at work, and now YOU have an opportunity to help them both. SAVE THE FROGS! is leading a 17 day expedition to Ghana that will include giving educational presentations, distributing frog educational materials, raising national awareness for the need to create the Atewa Hills National Park, and we will visit many beautiful places and see some amazing frogs!
We will travel all over Ghana educating kids, undergraduates and tribal leaders about the importance of protecting Ghana’s frogs, which are are under serious threat from habitat destruction, pesticides and over-harvesting for the frog meat trade. It is truly an exciting effort to help protect these amazing animals and you will directly help us grow Ghana’s network of students, academics and biologists interested in amphibian conservation efforts. It will be an adventure and an opportunity of a lifetime to help protect some of the planet’s most threatened animals and ecosystems.
Just got back from Africa, the most wonderful adventure of our lives!”
