SAVE THE FROGS! Grants

Since 2009, SAVE THE FROGS! has disbursed $101,299 in grants, to 47 amphibian conservationists in 16 countries (Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Estonia, Ghana, India, Liberia, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Paraguay, Tanzania and the USA).

SAVE THE FROGS! Grants fall into three categories:
(1) Amphibian Conservation Grants;
(2) Save The Frogs Day Grants; and
(3) Travel Grants

We award these grants to talented conservationists who share our love of amphibians and our desire to protect them. SAVE THE FROGS! Grants contribute significantly to worldwide amphibian conservation efforts and also to the career development of the awardees.

Why We Give Grants 

Grant recipients help SAVE THE FROGS! accomplish our mission to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife. Grant recipients gain valuable environmental experience and improve their ability to receive grants from other funders. Grant recipients help SAVE THE FROGS! by sending in a well-written final report and excellent project/event photos that we can add to our website, newsletter and social media to inspire supporters to donate and participate.


What We Fund

  • Projects that provide clear benefit to amphibian populations.
  • Projects with an amphibian focus that promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife.
  • Environmental journalism, graphic design, videos, art, books, podcasts, music and other communication media that raise awareness of amphibian issues or educate society about amphibians and ways to protect them.
  • Scientific research that has a clear conservation benefit
  • Projects by nonprofit organizations based anywhere on the planet
  • Projects by individuals only if they are USA citizens.
  • Conference travel if you will be presenting (or running an informational table or event) AND your presentation has clear benefit to amphibians.
    • If you are not a USA citizen, you must be affiliated with a registered nonprofit, who would serve as the funding recipient.
  • Save The Frogs Day Events
  • Projects aimed at raising funds for SAVE THE FROGS!

What We Do Not Fund

  • Projects that have no relation to amphibians.
  • Scientific research that does not have a clear conservation benefit.
  • Individuals outside the USA. We can only send funds internationally to nonprofit organizations, so if you are based outside the USA, your project should be in partnership with a nonprofit that can serve as the fiscal recipient.
  • Projects that harm individual amphibians or amphibian populations.
  • Amphibian commerce, trade, transport, captive-raising or aquaculture.
