Eduction for frogs should be done where it is needed the most which means outside the US! To save the frogs we need strong field conservation projects like saving habitats in the tropics! A good frog NGO is Amphibia Ark a great alliance to save the frogs!! http://www.amphibianark.org/the-crisis/amphibian-survival-alliance/

Save the frogs focus on education, sadly many frog species are vanishing now because their habitats are vanishing. Other charities have better comprehensive approach to save frogs around the world.

If you want to help frogs, there are better and more effective group out there. I would recommend Amphibian Conservation Alliance!

They only do education in bay area mostly (and frogs in Bay Area need habitat protection and acquisition). Further their small program in Africa has a very low chance of success.

Review from Guidestar

I was saddened to find that "savethefrogs" is a front for an otherwise unemployed individual to profit from. After careful research of this organization it it is clear that nearly all received funding goes toward paying the CEO's rent, meals and leisure activities, with little left to fund any direct efforts toward amphibian conservation. The CEO uses the group as a mechanism by which to pay his personal expenses, expand his social life and meet new women. The CEO, Kerry Kriger, has proven to be highly enthusiastic in pursuing social connections with naive, concerned female donors while remaining unwilling to pursue real conservation efforts. "Savethefrogs" serves as a model of non-profit abuse.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my research of its funding and actual efforts. The group was formed by one individual who actually uses donations to pay his own rent. he serves (against corporate chartering protocols) as both CEO and a member of the board of directors.

save the frogs is a greenwashing pseudo-charity that it's CEO uses to fund his day-day life. Technically, the 'charity' does little, if any, actual preservation work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

its clear abuse of non-profit status and funding

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Replace its CEO/Founder with someone with integrity

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Nothing,. I am greatly disillusioned in knowing that there are people like this abusing funding

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

unseemly and disingenuous

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do some good, but the CEO would VERY likely squander it maintaining on his personal life

Ways to make it better...

savethefrogs.com actually made any effort toward real conservation. Instead, the CEO uses donated money to pay his personal day-day expenses, and his time and the group's appeal to meet women.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

continuing to operate this enterprise

One thing I'd also say is that...

Non-profits like this, I would hope, are an exception, but all potential donors should seriously look at the financial before considering donating to it
