American Frog Day was a huge success! We successfully raised $4,500 to support amphibian conservation projects at Tree Walkers International & Amphibian Ark. This would not have been possible without the support of the 500+ attendees, 20+ vendors, and the Staten Island Zoo. Our keynote address, Amazing Amphibians presented by Dr Brad Wilson and Andreas Zarling, attracted 60 attendees. Thanks for a fantastic inspiring and engaging slideshow of your amphibian field experiences.
The vendors are a critical piece to the success of this event. They provide the majority of the financial support by paying for table space and giving generous auction donations.
