What YOU Can Do for Wildlife: Part 11

We’re nearing the end of Froglife’s  top 12 ideas for amphibian and reptile friendly actions.  We have been pulling together a range of ideas that show whatever you do, wherever you come from and however much time or resources you have, there is something you can do today to make a difference. 

Doing something wildlife-friendly will enrich your life, make you feel good about being part of a positive action, and potentially change your career or circle of friends. 

Idea Number 11.  Join the Giving Team
Donations help fund our work out and about in the community
Giving a regular or one off donation to the work of an organisation like Froglife can go a long way, as many projects require match funding – this means that big, grant giving bodies will fund projects, but often not 100% of what is needed.  Every £1 that comes in from individuals can help Froglife access £10 from a landfill community fund or another source, meaning that every donations grows.
“Wildlife conservation charities and projects have big ideas to help protect the animals and habitats we care about into the future,” explains Kathy Wormald, Froglife’s CEO.  “This includes managing areas for wildlife, creating new habitats, undertaking research and monitoring, campaigning for change, supporting and training volunteers, and introducing new generations to our natural heritage.” 
Not only can your donation help directly with positive solutions to the threats wildlife face, giving also feels good and you join a team of kind, supportive people with a passion for nature. 

“Our supporters are amazing people,” adds Melanie Hamlett, Froglife’s Finance Officer.  “People can be so generous in finding a way to help amphibians and reptiles, and it’s wonderful that they care.  I think sometimes people remember their own early experiences with frogspawn and tadpoles, and want to help make sure that future generations have the same opportunities to learn about these amazing animals. ”
There are a wide range of ways you can donate to Froglife:

·         You can donate online or via post here

·         You can text NEWT13 followed by a donation of up to £10 to 70070

·         Join the team and become a Froglife Friend

·         Set up an online piggy bank with Ploink

Thank you to all our supporters and donors for helping protect frogs, toads, newts, snakes and lizards, ponds and woodlands into the future.
