In September 2016, SAVE THE FROGS! will lead an international team of 8 amphibian biologists and frog enthusiasts on the inaugural SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana Expedition. The mission of the expedition is to protect Ghana's amphibian populations, empower the next generation of Ghanaian frog conservationists, and expand the international network of environmentalists interested in protecting West Africa's endangered amphibians and ecosystems.

henridrawsfrogs: I’m really into art, specifically scientific illustration. This is a drawing of a Pine Barrens Tree Frog. These guys live in in swampy and boggy habitat in three disconnected populations in the eastern United States: in New Jersey, in the sand hills of the Carolinas, and around southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle. Because of the disjointed nature of their small ranges and their pickiness with habitat, this species is incredibly vulnerable to habitat degradation.
