How many students at your university know that amphibians are in trouble? How many are actively working to protect the environment? Probably not enough! That’s where you come in! This brand new page lists some ideas on how to get SAVE THE FROGS! activities happening at your university.
“I am a student at Stony Brook University majoring in Environmental Sciences. I live on Cape Cod and my house is near an area loaded with vernal pools. For years now I have been working on getting these pools officially certified by the state as areas of critical environmental concern. I have documented spring peepers, tree frogs, wood frogs, green frogs, bull frogs, and yellow spotted salamanders that call these pools their home in the spring and summer. For years developers have been eyeing these areas as potential lots to build on. With the help of a few people we were able to get these areas protected and stop any development that may have occured there.
I just figured I would tell you what I have done on my part to help in this cause. I have also told many people about savethefrogs.com and the Annual Save The Frogs Day, I’ll continue to do what I can on my part to help protect these great creatures. I wish you the best of luck with everything.”
