Summary

Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates. Nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are threatened with extinction and up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1980. Amphibian populations are faced with an array of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. In Ghana alone, over 80% of Ghana's original rainforests have been cleared

Challenge

Frog populations have been declining worldwide at unprecedented rates. Nearly one-third of the world's amphibian species are threatened with extinction and up to 200 species have completely disappeared since 1980. Amphibian populations are faced with an array of environmental problems, including pollution, infectious diseases, habitat loss, invasive species, climate change, and over-harvesting for the pet and food trades. In Ghana alone, over 80% of Ghana's original rainforests have been cleared

Solution

SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana works on a variety of efforts, including growing the number of Ghanaian amphibian biologists; creating a new national park in the biodiverse Atewa Hills, which is currently under threat from diamond, gold and bauxite mining; instituting programs to replace the frog meat trade and illegal logging with sustainable, environmentally-friendly sources of income; and producing up-to-date field guides and other educational materials that will go to every high school in the country.

Long-Term Impact

SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana since 2013 has initiated pragmatic conservation actions alongside an extensive species monitoring programme. Together with local communities, we have cleared invasive weeds and planted +30,000 trees of the native species, linking the species' breeding sites, migration corridors and riparian areas. We have also established two community tree nurseries that ensure the constant supply of seedlings to reclaim more degraded and isolated areas.
