Now that is progress!
At the end of 2013, we gave out our very first grant. Since then we have supported 24 projects around the world, helping to direct a total of $551,586.99 to global amphibian conservation efforts.
This incredible achievement was made possible thanks to the support of Alliance Partners such as Rainforest Trust, Detroit Zoo and The British Herpetological Society, and because of dedicated individuals like you. Together we’re making a difference.
This has been a great start, and provides a solid foundation on which to start taking even bigger steps to protect the amphibians we all love. There are still more habitats to protect and more amphibians to be safeguarded against deadly infectious diseases.
For instance, we are actively raising support for a new 2,000 acre reserve in the remote Cuchumatanes mountains of Guatemala to protect the cloud forest home of several salamanders and frogs found nowhere else in the world.
By June we want to hit the $1,000,000.00 mark. By the end of this year we want to have invested $2,000,000.00 in amphibian conservation, research and education projects around the world.
Over 100 Alliance Partners are coming together to say, “Now is the time for action.”
Now is the time for you to join us in making the future even brighter for the millions of amphibians that share this planet with us by sharing our Facebook and Twitter posts for this exciting milestone!
