Every Year On The Last Saturday of April
About Save The Frogs Day
Conceived and coordinated by SAVE THE FROGS!, Save The Frogs Day is the world’s largest day of amphibian education and conservation action. Our goal is to provide frog enthusiasts with educational materials, ideas and inspiration and empower them to educate their local communities about amphibians. Since 2009, SAVE THE FROGS! staff and volunteers have conducted over 1,500 educational Save The Frogs Day events in at least 58 countries worldwide. Save The Frogs Day takes place annually on the last Saturday of April.
