The National Wildlife Federation is excited to partner with Save The Frogs, the world's most effective amphibian conservation organization! The National Wildlife Federation will be working with Save The Frogs to encourage residents, schools, and communities in California to create wetlands and native plant gardens that support native amphibian populations. Using programs like our Certified Wildlife Habitat™ we hope to inspire more people to prevent the extinction of amphibians and to create more spaces of coexistence for humans and wildlife!
Amphibian populations have been rapidly disappearing worldwide, and the majority of America's wetlands have been destroyed or modified. The good news is that amphibians can benefit immensely from the restoration or creation of even small sources of water. So Save The Frogs has launched an effort to Re-Frog America one wetland at a time, encouraging landowners, schools, and others to build 1,000 wetlands in a decade.
The National Wildlife Federation has partnered with Save The Frogs to encourage creating habitat for California amphibians. Get tips for building your own pond or wetland and learn to Garden for Wildlife on the National Wildlife Federation website.
The California red-legged frog is a rare species of frog found almost exclusively in the state of California. It is named appropriately, as it has reddish coloring on the legs and belly. California red-legged frogs are listed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act due to the effects of habitat loss, over exploitation of water resources, and threats from non-invasive species. The California red-legged frog has disappeared from 70% of its historic range in California and Mexico.
Dr. Kriger is the Founder and Executive Director of Save The Frogs. He conceived and coordinates Save The Frogs Day, the world's largest day of amphibian education and conservation action, and has given over 300 presentations on amphibian conservation in Australia, Belize, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, South Korea, and the USA.
