Pipa pipa frog art by Zoe Trautz, 23, USA
In September 2003 I flew to Australia to learn everything I could about frogs. I spent hundreds of hours walking up streams in search of frogs. I learned how to find and identify frogs by their calls and color patterns, body shape and habitat preferences. I learned molecular biology and spent hundreds of hours in the laboratory testing nearly 3,000 frogs for disease. I taught calculus, chemistry, ecology and vertebrate biology at my university and I won a large grant from the National Geographic Society to fund my research. I published original scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and received awards for presentations I gave at ecological conferences. In June 2007 I returned to the USA with a doctoral degree and a desire to put my knowledge to use for the betterment of the planet.
