January 10, 2012: Arlington, VA

SAVE THE FROGS! Founder Dr. Kerry Kriger gave a presentation on amphibian conservation to 20 members of the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Dr. Kriger discussed the role of the USFWS in reducing the spread of chytrid fungus; the over-harvesting of wild-caught amphibians; and ways the USFWS can help promote amphibian conservation at its 500+ wildlife refuges.

"Hi Kerry, I have gotten rave comments about your presentation to us on Tuesday! It was an excellent turnout. We had several people from our contaminents program, our National Coordinator for Aquatic Animal Health, plus endangered species, refuges, and many people from our Fisheries and Habitat Conservation program. We had a division chief and a college student in a career program, and your range of information from basic to technical addressed everyone's interests. Afterwards, the one-on-one discussions were great. Thank you so much for taking your time to speak to our staff!"
