Wrapping up in Connecticut

Last night I spoke at the Roaring Brook Nature Center in Canton, Connecticut. I gave a presentation about the amphibian extinction crisis and informed the audience what they can do to help save the frogs. It was a packed house and it was truly a pleasure to speak to so many dedicated nature lovers.

Last night’s presentation was my 5th and final talk in Connecticut. I received quite a bit of publicity as my talks were advertised in multiple papers and I was even featured on the local radio station. So much awareness to the issue of declining amphibian populations fills me with joy, because the word is truly getting out and that fact gives me hope! Since February 2011 I have  given presentations about amphibian ecology and conservation for SAVE THE FROGS and I never imagined I would become a voice for the frogs. Last night was my 105th presentation and I have spoken to 6,875 people in 5 different counties around the world. Let’s hope it has had an impact!

After the presentation we found a few of my favorite tree frogs: The Gray Tree Frog, Hyla versicolor! Like his name, this gorgeous guy was calling from the trees. What an awesome little frog!
