Golden Frog and Smithsonian’s Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project Raise $50,000 for Panamanian Golden Frogs!
We did it! We recently wrapped up our Fight for Frogs campaign, and met our goal to raise a total of $50,000 to support the endangered Panamanian golden frog. The golden frog (among other amphibians) is suffering from a chytrid fungus that is wiping the species out. The money raised will go toward science and research to find a cure for the chytrid fungus afflicting amphibians. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us to meet this goal – please join us in celebrating this great success!
A “Thank You” From Our Founders
We wanted to extend a big thank you to everyone who contributed to the Fight for Frogs campaign! We are thrilled with the campaign’s success, and that we were able to collaborate with the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute to raise so much money for the Panamanian golden frog. We are excited to support the research taking place, and hope this contribution helps further efforts to find a cure for the chytrid fungus. The Panamanian golden frog inspired the name for our company, and it’s very meaningful that we were able to collaborate with the Panama Amphibian Conservation and Rescue Project to support this cause.
Sincerely, Carolyn & Ron Yokubaitis
