A message I just received:
I am from South Africa, Cape Town. My parents live in SA, Kwazulu Natal, Vryheid, and in this small town there is a small dam. In this small dam, where i spent a lot of my time whilst spending my youth, there is a lot of frog. The nickname for this dam is Paddadammetjie, as is commonly known to all the residents of Vryheid.
But my cousin still lives in that town and she has a 7year old son. He came home crying the other day because the boys in his school took some frogs from the dam (the school is close to Paddadam) and the boys broke all the legs of all the frogs.’
These are the people who grow up to be the business executives and politicians that have no problem destroying frog habitat or polluting the environment if it means good money. If you think our environmental education projects are important, please consider donating to SAVE THE FROGS!
