Although Save The Frogs mainly raises awareness in conserving the amphibian populations, they have done multiple habitat conservation projects; like raising the Red-Legged Frog population at Antonelli Pond in Santa Cruz. They also fought hard to shut down the local Sharp Park gold coarse in order to preserve the land for the endangered species inhabiting that area.
Educating people is the most important thing in raising awareness in a given community. Save the Frogs does a great job speaking to students of all ages, alerting them about the current issue amphibians face and the problems humans will soon face if they continue using poisonous chemicals like Atrazine in farming, even the sale of frog legs in restaurants. Stopping the extinction of frogs is a long fragile process but SAVE THE FROGS is helping everywhere they can.
I'm currently on the board of directors as Secretary for the Bay Area Amphibians and Reptiles Society in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are deeply committed to saving frogs everywhere, and Save the Frogs will come speak to our club next month. The director / president, Kerry Kriger, is a very dedicated person and he is doing wonderful things for his non-profit, giving talks to educate people, sponsoring grants, providing materials for others to use in promoting ways to save frogs. This organization absolutely deserves recognition for being the only non-profit group focused on saving frogs, and for making it happen!
I love save the frogs, this organization as lots of info on how to take care of the planet so it won't affect frogs. i downloaded the save the frogs toolbar to use when i shop on line. they keep me informed on any web conferences. well worth joining and i love the fun pictures. Roxy green
We were inspired by the wonderful and valuable work by Dr Kriger. His sharing of information and resources helped make our effort an incredible success. He even came up to visit us in Canada, and spoke at several venues. It's easy to talk about the environment... but to actually go out and do real work with an animal that many disregard and forget, says a lot about SAVE THE FROGS! and Dr Kriger. We support this important work, and wish SAVE THE FROGS and all amphibians success!
In a world where most of our wilderness is already under attack and many animals are fighting for survival,
I met Dr. Kriger when I was looking for a tutor for my son. With a background in Animal Science, I was able to recognize the accurate and authentic message that Dr. Kriger is trying to share with the world. Dr. Kriger and SAVE THE FROGS! is an inspiration to volunteers because the message is critical, facts and professionals support the mission, and there is so much support,appreciation and opportunity for volunteers to make a meaningful difference!
my overall experience working with SAVE THE FROGS! has been wonderful. I first got involved because my son asked me to ... now I'm involved because I feel passionate about this cause. Dr. Kriger works so hard to spread the word and I want to help be a part of it.
My experience with SAVE THE FROGS! has been wonderful! I have the ability to work my own hours, from home, in my pj's... What gets better than that? STF offers several volunteer job descriptions, allowing individuals to work behind the scenes (internet research, graphic design) or out in front (giving lectures, participating in events). I highly recommend volunteering for this organization, as the individuals involved are original, dedicated and successful!
Save the Frogs is a fun and energizing charity. They are passionate about their work being on the front lines of the amphibian extinction crisis. Volunteers are given clear instructions on what to do and are always made to feel they are appreciated for their work. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, there are volunteer opportunities for all ages.
