Save the Frogs Day
Saturday 27 April
“Save The Frogs Day is the world’s largest day of amphibian education and conservation action. Our goal is to provide people with educational materials, ideas and inspiration and empower them to educate their local communities about amphibians. Save The Frogs Day takes place annually on the last Saturday of April.
We chose April because frogs are active (in the temperate Northern Hemisphere anyway), and because it’s warm enough that field trips can take place. Also, schools are in session and most universities have not yet started exam, so students can take an active part.
Save The Frogs Day Worldwide Impact
Since 2009 our supporters have held over 1,300 Save The Frogs Day educational events in 60 countries. These events have helped educate tens of thousands of people about the importance of frogs and ways to protect amphibian populations!
Save The Frogs Day events have included protests at the US Environmental Protection Agency for its failure to ban harmful endocrine-disrupting pesticides; parades through major urban centers; frog art and photo exhibits in town centers; habitat restoration at critical frog habitats; nature walks to teach people about their local amphibians; and numerous presentations on amphibian conservation in schools and universities. Because of Save The Frogs Day and our worldwide network of volunteers, the frogs now have assistance all around the planet, and the next generation of humans is growing up with the knowledge needed to protect amphibians from extinction.”
