Attention San Francisco teachers!

SAVE THE FROGS! received a grant from the San Francisco Tadpole Head Start Program (via Tree Frog Treks) to give free presentations on amphibian conservation to 30 San Francisco schools.

Contact Michael Starkey at starkey@savethefrogs.com to arrange for an in-class presentation!

“The Wild World of Frogs”
A presentation by Biologist Michael Starkey
SAVE THE FROGS! Advisory Committee Chairman

How long do frogs live? How many types of frogs are there? What’s the difference between a frog and a toad? Why are frogs disappearing worldwide and what can be done to save them? Michael Starkey answers all these questions and more as he introduces the audience to The Wild World of Frogs. The presentation features many of Michael’s photos of amphibians from around the world, and there will be a question and answer session following the presentation.

Mr. Starkey has worked as an ecological consultant for environmental consulting firms and government agencies such as the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish & Game. After witnessing the result of widespread extinction of amphibians in the Panamanian rainforest, Mr. Starkey became dedicated to conserving amphibian species around the world. Mr. Starkey began volunteering with SAVE THE FROGS! in 2010 to inform the public about the threats facing amphibians and to to help nurture a society that respects and cherishes all forms of wildlife. He regularly gives lectures on amphibian conservation at universities, schools, and to public interest groups.
