Happy Save The Frog’s Day!
SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana organized educational Save The Frog’s Day events across Ghana, with a goal of raising amphibian awareness and specifically to reduce the frog meat trade, and to increase support of our efforts to create the Atewa Hills National Park. Yesterday over 150 people attended the Save The Frog’s Day event in Kumasi, Ghana!
This event was organized by the SAVE THE FROGS! Chapter at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST). The day started off with educational presentations about local issues in the environment, including the need to restore the Wee Wee River and how to effectively protect the Togo Slippery Frog, Conraua derooi.
SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Executive Director Gilbert Adum discussed amphibian conservation efforts in Ghana and how SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana has become a model for amphibian conservation in West Africa.
SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Program Coordinator Sandra Owusu-Gyamfi spoke about how women can help save the frogs in their local communities.
After the presentation, the Executive Leaders of KNUST Chapter of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana handed over their positions to the next generation of dedicated frog savers at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology.
