Frogs Need Our Help

Why?

Amphibians are a group of animals that most people don't even think twice about.

You may not even know that there is a global amphibian extinction crisis happening right now. Nearly 40% of the world's amphibians are in decline or already extinct. The Amphibian Foundation's work is three-pronged: 1) On-the-ground research and conservation work, 2) Education and outreach and 3) Dissemination through publications, online and social media. Not only do these animals need conservation measures identified and implemented, but amphibian declines need to be made public knowledge. They aren't cute and fuzzy like a Panda, or a bunny ... but if all we fight to conserve are the cute and the fuzzy, then the natural world will become seriously out of balance. We precede all of our workshops with a summary of what is happening world-wide with the amphibian communities, and why we need to care.

Our online presence and message is unified under the heading 'Frogs Need Our Help'. This simple heading conveys that we need to become involved in order to reduce or reverse amphibian declines. Getting Involved is not as difficult as you might think!
