Is there any other group out there who is helping these defenseless little creatures? Why not hop on the bandwagon to save these cute things from falling through the cracks!

From Our Editors

Calls to “Save the Frogs!” rang out among a crowd of supporters surrounding the Environmental Protection Agency in 2011. Save the Frogs! supporters gathered to protest the pesticide atrazine, which causes male frogs to develop female traits, according to a report from the Washington Post. Although the EU banned atrazine in 2004, the fight to end its use in the United States continues with another rally on October 12—the International Day of Pesticide Action.

These efforts for frog conservation epitomize the goal of Save the Frogs!, but the threats to frogs run far and wide. They face extinction from disease, habitat destruction, and international trade—factors that have led to the disappearance of up to 200 amphibian species since 1979. Concerned about this trend, Dr. Kerry Kringer founded Save the Frogs! in 2008. Since then, he has sponsored educational programs and protests like the one in DC to limit frog importation and increase conservation efforts. Every year on April 27, Save the Frogs! also coordinates a worldwide amphibian conservation day—Save the Frogs Day—in 50 countries, including its second base in Ghana. With time, Save the Frogs! aims to keep frogs safe around the world and stabilize their population growth in the wild.
