In an effort to raise awareness of the plight of amphibians, the scientific community has declared Friday April 30th, 2010 the 2nd Annual ‘Save The Frogs Day‘. On this day we encourage the appreciation and celebration of amphibians by people from all walks of life.
Please get involved and help spread the word!
Only a small proportion of our public is aware that frogs are disappearing, and amphibian conservation efforts will not be successful with an un-informed public. Our goal is to make the amphibian extinction crisis common knowledge by Save The Frogs Day: help make it happen!
Save The Frogs Day 2010 is a de-centralized event: that means it’s up to you to make something happen in your part of the universe. The frogs are depending on you. Your children and their children are depending on you.
The future of the planet lies in your hands and in your actions. SAVE THE FROGS!
Vancouver was one of the first cities in the world last year that officially proclaimed “Save the Frogs Day”. The kick off event occurred at a local high school, and was well attended by students packed to capacity throughout the entire school day.
The day capped off with an official “Save The Frogs Day” proclamation from the Mayor’s office.
It was a most successful event, and even saw our Mayor, Mr. Gregor Robertson, holding onto a beautiful treefrog for the camera!
Get involved in YOUR community!
