Hoppy Christmas from Froglife

2012 has been a really challenging, exciting and busy year for Froglife, particularly with our new Dragon Finder projects developingin London and Scotland.

All of the team are really grateful to all the volunteers, people involved in projects, donors, supporters, suppliers and everyone who has helped keep the organisation going. 

Thank you for your support and interest in the UK’s amphibians and reptiles and everything you have done to protect and conserve these wonderful animals.

We wish you a lovely, peaceful Christmas and magical start to the New Year.  Here’s to 2013 and digging more ponds, building hibernacula, surveying, creating wildlife art, introducing young people to amphibians and reptiles, saving toads from roads and generally working together to do our bit in whatever form that takes. 

Croaks will be back in the New Year to keep you updated with Froglife and nature news.  Don’t forget there are lots of ways to get involved and support us onour website here.

Have a hoppy Christmas
and a wonderful newt year!

From all the Froglife team

What YOU Can Do for Wildlife: Part 12

In the final instalment of our 12 part feature covering some of the diverse actions you can take to help amphibians, reptiles and other wildlife, we look to the future....

Idea Number 12. Your Newt Year’s Resolution

What can you do to help wildilfe this winter, and for the rest of the year?
We hope you will be inspired to keep helping wildlife, as the difficulties species and habitats face are not going to disappear overnight and we need to keep fighting. We have aimed to show that there are lots of different things you can do to help, and that whatever your interests, skills or abilities there is something you can contribute. You can also have fun, meet new people and develop a new career or hobby at the same time.
