Internships & Jobs
Welcome to the new look of FrogLog. It has been a busy few months for the ASG! We have redesigned the look and feel of FrogLog along with our other media tools to better serve the needs of the ASG community. We hope that FrogLog will become a regular addition to your reading and a platform for sharing research, conservation stories, events, and opportunities. We invite submissions of everything from letters and research papers to workshop announcements or simply stories from the field. It is your platform and we look forward to working with you to make it as relevant and informative as possible.
Soon we will also launch an updated ASG website at www.amphibians.org. The site will be more dynamic and include resources such as a forum to stimulate discussion on issues related to amphibian research and conservation. Please take a moment and join our Facebook and Twitter communities and use these social networks, along with the Web site and mailing list, to engage with the wider ASG community.
To support these new resources the ASG has hired a new coordinator, and it is with pleasure that we welcome James Lewis on board. James is bringing with him several years of program coordinator experience having spent the last five years working in Central America, most recently with the Wildlife Conservation Society in Belize. Prior to moving to the Americas James worked as an Ecological Consultant in Europe and has spent time working in sub-Saharan Africa. James will play a key role in assisting with the day to day running of the ASG. His major focus will be developing the ASG Web site and communication strategies to meet the needs of our members and the greater herpetological community. Please feel free to contact James with any requests and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to working with you to build a community of committed individuals with a shared concern and appreciation for all amphibians.
