Few people are aware that frogs are disappearing worldwide at unprecedented rates. As most of the threats to frogs are caused by the actions of individuals, we need to educate our society with all due speed if we plan to stop an imminent mass extinction of amphibians that will result in irreversible consequences to ecosystems and to humans.
Can you imagine how much would be getting done to prevent global warming if, as is the case with frog extinctions, only 2% of the population had ever heard of global warming? Nothing would get done! Education is key, and that’s why Save The Frogs Day is so important.
We can make the amphibian common knowledge by the 2nd Annual Save The Frogs Day, April 30th, 2010, but ONLY WITH YOUR SUPPORT! Please chip in $10 right now so that we can make the 2nd Annual Save The Frogs Day a massive international event covered by every major news organization on the planet.
We’re already planning the events…benefit concerts, activities at schools, zoos, museums, free public lectures, and we’re already writing politicians. Earlier this year Governor Kaine of Virginia became the highest ranking government official to officially acknowledge the amphibian extinction crisis when he signed Save The Frogs Day 2009 into law in Virginia. Mayor Robertson of Vancouver followed suit. Thousands of children in 15 different countries got educated about frogs through free public lectures. That was the first time the event was held, with virtually no funding and no full-time organizers for the event.
Imagine how big Save The Frogs 2010 can be — will be — with your support.
Please donate $10 right now and make Save The Frogs Day 2010 a massive success that eventually raises millions of dollars for amphibian conservation projects.
