British Columbia - Vancouver

A number of families and schools will be gathering to learn about the importance of amphibians to humanity. Several private property owners have permitted the collection of pacific tree frog eggs from their ponds. These eggs / tadpoles will be cared for in the participating family's homes and schools. A planned a froglet release in the summer when the tadpoles have all morphed out, and it will be held at Vancouver's Vandusen Botanical Garden, with support from the garden. The garden over the past few years has successfully removed all the invasive bullfrogs, and is now ready to accept the native tree frogs that historically populated this area.
Thus over the next few months, we will co-ordinate this meaningful effort, and volunteers will have the opportunity to network with each other and help co-ordinate with schools and families that plan to participate. The media will be invited to cover the froglet release later this summer. We expect a few hundred Pacific tree froglets will be happily hopping off into their new homes at that time!

Ontario - London

We will be meeting at Southdale Rd. at Adelaide St. Free parking is available at the plaza's across from the entrance to the ponds. Looking forward to a great hike that will hopefully become an annual event!

"The walk was done to raise awareness in our community about the conservation of amphibians and although it's too early (and cold) to see any frogs, we did see fabulous habitats! It was a muddy hike but enjoyed by all! Thanks for all the fabulous work you do! We will continue to raise awareness and perhaps one day we'll have a Save The Frogs chapter here in London, Ontario, Canada! Take care!
Best Regards,
Melanie Oudshoorn"

This year's Save The Frogs Day at Atewa will be held on 16th May, 2015 under the theme "Saving the Togo Slippery Frog from Mining, the Role of Local People." It is expected to bring together 200 local people from two fringe communities who will go on street parades and compete in a soccer match. A speech will be delivered by SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Associate Executive Director, Sandra Owusu-Gyamfi on the unique ecological value of the Atewa Range Forest Reserve and the need to protect it, thus empowering local people and involving them in the fight against the destruction of this biodiverse area.

The Atewa Range Forest Reserve is Ghana's most biodiverse yet most threatened wilderness area. It is home to the critically endangered Togo Slippery Frog (Conraua derooi), a close relative of the world's largest frog, the Goliath Frog (Conraua goliath). There are widespread illegal mining and logging activities funded by foreigners which are unfortunately destroying critical habitats of the frog and other natural resources including water bodies which supply over 5 million Ghanaians with drinking water. In recent years, STF! Ghana together with other local non-profit conservation organisations have been spearheading campaigns to get the Government of Ghana to upgrade the status of the Atewa Range Forest Reserve from a reserve to a national park for its permanent protection. This year's Save The Frogs Day, is to get local people involved in the fight against the destruction of this unique forest. For more information, please contact


Campaigning within this locality on the theme "Frogs on Roads (FOOR)," SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana will raise public awareness about widespread frog deaths caused by road users. Activities have therefore been planned to raise awareness and educate the public on preventive measures to reduce amphibian roadkills. Preceding the day will be a 30 minutes discussion on Nabiina Radio, the district FM station which broadcasts to +2,000 local people, about the plight of frogs to roadkills and what can be done to reduce it. There will be a phone-in section where staff of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana will get interactive with the public. Through this broadcast, we will also invite people to the major events planned for Save The Frogs Day including, "Racing for Frogs," a 11km bicycle racing competition and a street parade with local people holding placards to raise awareness about the indiscriminate killing of frogs by road users. Some inscriptions on the placards will read "If you can't see what is on the road, slowdown"; "Watch out for me on rainy days"; "Don't run me over when you see me on the road"; "Rescue me when I get trapped on the road"; "I love puddles but not when they are on the road," "Patch that pothole before I confuse it for my habitat" e.t.c.

We will also visit our vibrant SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana football team, to retool it with sports and educational materials. A courtesy call will be paid to the paramount chief and the elders of the traditional area to thank them for their support for STF! Ghana and also inform them of planned projects for the community. The day will finally be crowned with a speech and the presentation of awards to race winners by the Associate Executive Director of STF! Ghana, Sandra Owusu-Gyamfi.

This campaign is necessary as many roads in Ghana are plagued with puddles and potholes which amphibians frequently use as temporary habitats, increasing their risk to roadkills. In addition, many die on the roads during their natal migration to breeding sites. Unfortunately, the general lack of awareness among Ghanaians to this development make amphibians even more vulnerable to roadkill. For more information, please contact


SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana KNUST Chapter, the world's first student chapter of SAVE THE FROGS!, will use this year's Save The Frogs Day celebration to restore degraded habitats at the Wewe River. On 23rd May, 2015, we will remove invasive alien weeds and plant 1,000 seedlings of fast growing native trees within 2-ha of this wetland. Prior to the habitat restoration activity, an intensive 3-day survey will also be conducted to get a complete checklist of local amphibians and establish permanent monitoring sites of critical amphibian habitats including breeding sites, and areas with the highest population abundance and threatened species. We will also record geographic positions of species and develop maps to show their exact locations. Student members will take advantage of faculty and department billboards, pasting flyers and posters to announce events to invite and inform the general student body about our activities and outcomes. All events and survey outcomes will also be announced on the campus radio station, Focus FM, which airs to the +2,000,000 people in Ghana's second largest city, Kumasi. We will also engage the public in debates on the implications encroachments on wetlands have on amphibians and biodiversity in general.

These activities are part of an ongoing project dubbed "The KNUST Wewe River Amphibian Project, K-WRAP" which seeks to (1) restore degraded habitats and establish vegetation corridors along the section of the Wewe River (2) establish a long-term programme to monitor species' population status, and (3) launch an education programme to increase environmental awareness for the amphibians' long-term protection. The Wewe River forms part of wetlands and a remnant upland forest, which altogether provide critical habitats for at least 12 amphibian species. Unfortunately, the combination of widespread activities such as waste disposal, illegal farming and tree collection are degrading the habitat of the river's amphibian species, causing them to suffer significant population declines. For more information, please contact

Yawkrom – Sui River Forest Reserve

For the first time, SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana will celebrate Save The Frogs Day in the home region of the critically endangered Giant Squeaker Frog (Arthroleptis krokosua). We will host Save The Frogs Day on 9th May, 2015 under the theme: "Saving The Iconic Giant Squeaker Frog: Legacy for the Future." This event is expected to increase awareness among an estimated 500 schoolchildren, community leaders, foresters and local people about the plight of the Giant Squeaker Frog to habitat destruction at the Sui River Forest Reserve (SRFR). Events to be held on the day include a drama enactment by local schoolchildren. The play will focus on the effects habitat degradation from human activities including farming and logging have on SRFR, the Giant Squeaker Frog, and subsequently on mankind. There will also be poetry recitals about the plight of the Giant Squeaker Frog and on amphibian conservation. We will also be drumming, dancing and singing for the Giant Squeaker Frog.
To date, only 13 individuals of this endemic and rare frog are known to be surviving at SRFR. Unfortunately, the combination of logging, farming, and the invasion of the non-native weed, Devil weed (Chromolaena odorata) are preventing the Giant Squeaker Frog and other co-occurring endangered frogs including Phrynobatrachus villiersi (Vulnerable), P. annulatus (Endangered) and Hylarana occidentalis (Endangered) from recovering from the brink of extinction.





We will celebrate Save The Frogs Day for the 4th year, in collaboration with Biodiversity and Wildlife conservation Lab, Department of Zoology, University of Lucknow, U.
