Congratulations to SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana board member Dr. Caleb Ofori-Boateng for winning the prestigious Future for Nature award. This award is only given to young, exceptionally talented and ambitious conservationists committed to protecting biodiversity. Such beneficiaries should also have shown the ability to inspire and influence communities, governments, investors, organizations and the general public in biodiversity conservation. SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana is proud of Caleb’s achievements and for projecting the image of biodiversity conservation in Ghana and Africa at large.
Through this award, Caleb will carry out activities that will support the designation of a new national park at the Atewa Hills to protect the only home of the Togo Slippery Frog (Conraua derooi). The award will also be used to promote the conservation actions of the species by researching into its ecology and biological features. The potential economic value of eco-tourism that could be generated from the forest will also be analyzed. As part of the award, 20 hectares of the degraded forest will be restored to improve water and land quality for the Togo Slippery Frog, other biodiversity and mankind.
Thanks to Future for Nature for giving SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana board member Dr. Caleb Ofori-Boateng this award to save the critically endangered Togo Slippery Frog.
