Join Mike Dilger to Talk Toads in London!

Froglife is thrilled to invite you to our upcoming event with the Zoological Society of London. Tuppence a Toad: Tales from UK Toad Conservation and Beyond will include informative talks about amphibian conservation by Froglife and ZSL. To give the night an extra boost, we will be welcoming Mike Dilger, the bubbly and enthusiastic nature presenter from the BBC’s One Show, to chair the event.

There will be news from the frontlines of amphibian conservation, time to buy drinks and mingle, as well as an exhibition of toad illustrations and photos. It promises to be an informative and fun evening and we hope you can join us.

The event will be held at ZSL’s headquarters in London Zoo on Friday 30th September 2011. Tickets are £5 for Froglife Friends, £8.50 for other toad lovers. There will also be a raffle and a chance to donate on the night, with funds raised shared by Froglife and ZSL to contribute to amphibian conservation projects. This will be the grand finale to our year long ‘Tuppence a Toad’ campaign.
