SAVE OUR FROGS DAY!
South Africa’s First National Awareness Day for Frogs,
1 December 2012

Aspiring princesses beware! We are very quickly running out of frogs to kiss! Frogs are among the most threatened species on Earth. These creatures of popular folklore are teetering on the brink of extinction and unless we act NOW to save them, South Africa will start losing species. In an effort to bring these very important and beautiful amphibians back from the brink of extinction the EWT will be holding a Save Our Frogs Day on the 1st Of December 2012.

The aim of Save Our Frogs Day is to bring awareness to this highly threatened group of animals and highlight conservation needs. There will be various events taking place around the country. Jeanne Tarrant, Manager of the EWT’s Threatened Amphibian’s Programme, will be speaking at two events on the day. Please also contact Jeanne to find out how you can do your part to Save our Frogs!
