I love frogs and I am happy to volunteer for Endangered Species International to save frogs in the field. It is very difficult to find a charity which has field projects to save endangered frogs. I will help again.

ESI (Endangered Species International) is doing a great job in helping the environment. With the projects that they have been doing they are able to let other people understand the importance of protecting and conserving species around the world. ESI is had a wonderful project in Dumaguete City, Negros oriental, Philippines. The project is called "SAVE THE CORAL REEFS" and it was very successful. A number of young people were involved in the project. These young people were trained to create and perform an advocacy play in line with the vision, mission and goals of ESI. Because of this the youth sector is being informed of the importance to take actions to save the environment specifically the endangered species. With this project, a wide range of the community will have the chance to know the real situation of the world and will soon have their realization to take part in the movement of saving the environment. ESI helped us a lot in understanding our connection to the world and how important it is to humanity. I hope that there will be more projects like this with ESI. ESI should continue what they do because they are making a difference.

I love Endangered Species International and their projects. I wish i had more time to help on the ground. I spend 2 months participating in protecting coral reefs in the coral triangle. Creating more marine protected areas is one of the goals of ESI.

I helped with educational materials for awareness and education activities. I visited schools and got so much good energy from children and their interests in protecting endangered species.

I volunteered for 3 charities before including Endangered Species International. I am impressed by the dedication and strong ethics of ESI. They even try to use only solar energy in all their field activities. Most important is that their project are concrete and well integrated in local communities.

Realy dedicated staff. ESI Congolese team works in very hard remote areas in the rainforest of Congo to save endangered gorillas. They have to face malaria and ebola threats. Weather conditions are difficult as well, humid, hot, heavy rain. Saving gorillas from illegal hunting is a very difficult job that requires a lot of dedication and passion for endangered species. Bravo to Endangered Species International!

Thank you to ESI for sharing so much information on endangered species. It really helped our school project activity. We also organized a fundraising for ESI for gorillas and elephants in Africa. I am 12 years old and hope to work for an organization like ESI when i get older. Thank you
