SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Wins Global Conservation Leadership Award

Congratulations to SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Executive Director Gilbert Adum and his team for winning Conservation Leadership Award of $15,000, for the protection of Ghana’s Critically Endangered Squeaker Frog (Arthroleptis krokosua).  The Squeaker Frog is in immediate trouble of extinction as only 12 individuals are known to exist, all in an unprotected forest patch in Western Ghana’s Sui River Forest Reserve. SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana will collect data on the Squeaker Frog’s population status and habitats, and launch an education program to increase awareness among local people and the general public.  On behalf of the team, Gilbert Adum will also attend a two-week Conservation Leadership & Management Training Workshop at a remote ecological research station in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, where he will learn important leadership skills to help himself and team members become the next generation of experts at the forefront of conservation in Ghana and globally.
