Froglife gets ready for leap off

In two weeks Froglife is holding an event to celebrate the efforts of a number of experts committed to saving amphibians from extinction, both in the UK and abroad. You can be a part of it!

‘Year of the Frog – a big leap forward’ will be held on the evening of Friday 14th November at Edinburgh Zoo. The event will be chaired by the eminent Professor Aubrey Manning, authority on animal behaviour and renowned BBC broadcaster.

The exciting evening gives you a chance to hear the story of some of the hard-working fieldworkers, scientists, landscape-shapers, and campaigners who will be continuing the fight for amphibians long after Year of the Frog 2008 ends.

Speakers at the event will include respected herpetologists Professor Tim Halliday and Professor Roger Downie, Glasgow City Council’s Jim Coyle MBE speaking alongside individuals from Froglife and The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

Limited tickets remain - book early!

Tickets (£5 each) can be paid by cheque (made payable to ‘The Froglife Trust’ and posted to Froglife, 9 Swan Court, Cygnet Park, Peterborough PE7 8GX) or by credit/debit card over the phone (01733 558844 - office hours). For additional information please email: info@froglife.org.
