I had become increasingly aware that amphibians are at risk in our world. When I wanted to find out how to take care of my garden, lawn, wetland area, and forest grove, I wrote to Save the Frogs for information. Within a few hours, Dr. Kerry Kriger had sent me information and links that were of great utility and interest. As a result, I returned five unopened bags of a lawn-care weed 'n feed product to the local store and spoke with the store manager about the harmful effects of that product on frogs. Although I'm pulling my dandelions by hand, my husband and I love the evening symphony of croaking frogs all around us. I've continued to receive frequent updates from this organization. Dr. Kriger and his staff work diligently, helping his readers become more equipped to help Save the Frogs of the world.
