LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 26, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — US public charity SAVE THE FROGS! announced its latest set of winners. The funds will be used for a wide range of projects around the world, from holding educational Save The Frogs Day events in schools, universities and museums, to carrying out surveys of critically endangered amphibians in extinction in remote rainforests.
Frog populations have declined at an unprecedented rate and almost a third of the world’s 8,474 amphibian species are threatened with extinction. Up to 200 species have already completely disappeared.
Since 2008, SAVE THE FROGS! has been at the forefront of global amphibian conservation efforts, hosting more than 2,000 educational events and building dozens of wetlands in partnership with schools and government agencies. The mission of the American company SAVE THE FROGS! is to protect amphibian populations and promote a society that respects and values nature and wildlife.
Since its creation, SAVE THE FROGS! provided $120,974 in grants to 61 amphibian conservationists in 19 countries (Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, Estonia, Ghana, India, Liberia, Madagascar, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Tanzania, United Kingdom and the United States).
This year, SAVE THE FROGS! awarded a total of $11,096 in grants to amphibian conservationists in six countries. Organizations that have won funds this year include San Carlos University (Guatemala), Bristol Zoological Society (UK), Jagannath University Department of Zoology (Bangladesh), PSGR Krishnammal Nursery and Primary School (India), Kalinga State University – Rizal Campus (Philippines), Roosevelt Park Zoo (North Dakota, USA), A Frog House (NY, USA), Isabela Foundation (Bangladesh), Nature Study and Conservation Club of Jagannath University (Bangladesh), Department of Zoology, SAVE THE FROGS! India and Pradhikar (Bangladesh).
“We award these grants to talented conservationists who share our love of amphibians and our desire to protect them,” says Dr. Kerry Kriger, who founded SAVE THE FROGS! in 2008 as the world’s first public charity dedicated exclusively to amphibians. “SAVE THE FROGS!” Grants contribute significantly to global amphibian conservation efforts as well as the career development of awardees.
In addition to financial support, winners receive advice and logistical support for the implementation of their projects and ensure that their projects are featured on the SAVE THE FROGS! website, which has received millions of visitors over the years.
SAVE THE FROGS! Grants are made possible by the generous support of thousands of SAVE THE FROGS! donors around the world. Learn more about SAVE THE FROGS! Grants here.
