|SAVE THE FROGS DAY SCHEDULED FOR 28 APRIL 2009|
In an effort to raise awareness of the plight of amphibians, the herpetological community has declared the last Tuesday of every April as SAVE THE FROGS DAY. On this day we encourage the appreciation and celebration of anurans by people from all walks of life.
Please get involved and help spread the word. Remember that only a small proportion of our public is aware that frogs are disappearing, and that amphibian conservation efforts will not be successful until anuran declines are common knowledge. Think of how long it has taken for any political action on global warming to occur. Politicians rarely act until the public demands action. Our goal is to make the anuran extinction crisis common knowledge by 2013 -- help make it happen.
SAVE THE FROGS DAY is a perfect time for teachers and students to focus on anuran conservation, learn about anuran extinctions, and discuss ways that we can all contribute to anuran conservation efforts.
