The enthusiasm this group has for educated the public about frogs is incredible!
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 love SAVE THE FROGS! They run campaigns to get harmful pesticides banned, protect land, get dissections out of schools and frog legs out of restaurants. And they organize Save The Frogs Day, which gets educational events going in about 40 countries! Nobody does a better job advocating for the frogs and educating people about protecting the environment than SAVE THE FROGS!
Review from Guidestar
SAVE THE FROGS is fantastic! They coordinated April 30th's Save The Frogs Day, which was the largest day of amphibian education in the planet's history, over 20 countries took part!
I'm a graduate student and use SAVE THE FROGS' free amphibian disease detection protocols to do my research. I wouldn't be able to do my research without this...Great organization!
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
Review from Guidestar
SAVE THE FROGS is the only organization of its kind...a grassroots movement working to protect the world's frogs, which are rapidly going extinct. I love them!
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
My daughter and I found and joined Save the Frogs after watching a documentary about the amphibian crisis. The information and resources Save the Frogs provides on their website are fantastic, especially the materials and activities for kids. We drew heavily on STF resources when creating a short video for my daughter to share with her class: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbcROOuc1Zw This organization has inspired her very serious outreach and advocacy efforts (and has made me the proudest parent possible).
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!
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.
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!
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. rhiannyn grahame
This organization works tirelessly to bring amphibian extinction awareness to the forefront, enabling research and important conservation projects. Save the Frogs!!
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.
Frogtastic! This site promotes amphibian decline awareness and provides a networking and sharing platform for the public to spread the word.
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.
