Amanda Cooper on empowering students to save frogs

Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,

It has been said numerous times that “Our future is our children,” and even with the constant repetition of that saying, the words still ring true. Students and children are the future of this world. We will one day be the grown ups and we will have to make decisions about this world. That is why it is extremely important that the youth are not only are educated, but passionate about the world around us. This not far off future is one that we all need to work together to achieve.

Does your class want a free presentation about frogs?

Thanks to a grant from the Helen and Allan Ridley Charitable Trust, SAVE THE FROGS! is educating thousands of San Francisco students about the importance of amphibians! Through the highly popular San Francisco Tadpole Headstart Program, which is led by SAVE THE FROGS! and our partner Tree Frog Treks, we have already given dozens of free presentations on amphibian conservation to thousands of San Francisco students. Tree Frog Treks compliments the presentations by bringing live native San Francisco tadpoles into classrooms to teach students about metamorphosis and threats to local frogs. Our goal is to get San Francisco kids excited about frogs and interested in protecting them.

“Michael…thank you. Your passion about frogs and what you are trying to do is infectious and so refreshing. It’s also great for kids to see that scientists are humans with curiosity, not only someone in a lab wearing a white cost. Thanks again for a thoughtful and informative presentation.”
