Save the Frogs, a nonprofit organization dedicated to amphibian conservation, is competing for $250,000 in the Chase Community Giving Contest. Save the Frogs is involved in many projects to improve water quality around the world.
Amphibians are some of the first animals to show the effects of polluted water. Keeping water clean enough for frog populations to stay healthy is the first step to keeping water clean for humans.
Save the Frogs has projects to educate citizens on the dangers of pesticides, on the necessity of wetland conservation, and on the effects of climate change. A recent campaign involving the pesticide atrazine was led by Save the Frogs and got the attention of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
