We are extremely pleased to inform you that SAVE THE FROGS! finished in the Top 20 Leaderboard of the Chase Community Giving Contest, earning us $25,000 for our worldwide amphibian conservation efforts. Thanks to Chase Bank and the 2,343 people who took the time to vote for us and help spread the word!!
This extra funding will be of huge assistance on our quest to SAVE THE FROGS!, enabling us to ramp up our environmental education programs and our campaigns against pesticides, the frog legs trade, dissections and habitat destruction. That being said, this generous contribution from Chase Bank in no ways covers all the costs required to fix the massive amounts of ecological damage our society has already caused; indeed a scientific report from 2007 calculated that amphibian conservation efforts require at least 80 million dollars per year…and SAVE THE FROGS! operates on about one-thousandth of that. We have seemingly endless lists of progams we would like to implement that unfortunately still lack funding. So while this unexpected influx of $25,000 is fabulous, we still rely on your support now as much as ever.
Thanks again to all who helped us win this $25,000: the frogs thank you!!!
