I am astonished by what I recently learned about Save The Frogs.com.
There is no transparency about donations.
Kerry, the founder, provides no info on how money is spent, and he does seem to use donations to pay his personal room and board and personal expenses.
I am disgusted and will no longer donate to this sickening charade.
This post is blatantly incorrect, posted by an angry person whose hastily-written proposal was not granted funds from SAVE THE FROGS!.
All SAVE THE FROGS! financial information is publicly available at www.savethefrogs.com/who-we-are
Dr. Kriger is an amazing man, doing work in the field of amphibian ecology, in particular, with frogs.
The website is a veritable wealth of information, and as a Teacher-Librarian, I find it a very useful place to guide children's awareness of the plight of frogs worldwide.
I can't say enough about how happy I am to have found his cause, and to be able to contribute and help in whatever way possible to Save the Frogs. It is imperative that we make every effort to do just that, as it affects the balance of nature up and down the ecological spectrum.
Kudos to Dr. Kriger and his team. If I lived in the Bay area of California, I would be more than happy to volunteer where needed.
