    Well if I had all the money in the world I would buy all land and not only frogs but all species would be protected forever! Forever grateful for my experience to Ecuador

    This is such a straight forward and no-nonsense way to reverse the habitat destruction that endangers so many frog species- create new wetlands. Sounds easy, but it costs money to do it- so please, support this project like we did.

    Kathlyn Franco Osagie knows how to design and restore naturally appearing and functioning wetlands for Endangered Species of amphibians, reptiles, and fish. She has helped built 27-wetlands for the Chiricahua leopard frog, and the California red-legged frog to date. Kathlyn works effectively with agency personnel, landowners, and heavy equipment operators to build wetlands that require little, if any maintenance. I encourage you to support her passion for restoring wetlands for rare species.

About Kathlyn Franco Osagie

My Arizona wetland goal was met! Thank you to everyone who donated. If you didn't get a change to donate to this cause don't fret. Here is another amazing opportunity. We are trying to fly me out to design four wetlands in Louisiana. 

These wetlands will be used to provide habitat for amphibians and be used for outdoor education. Louisiana ranks among the poorest states in the nation for science education and overall K-12 student performance. This is one of the major motivating factors behind taking this 8.2 acres of land and converting it into a youth nature-based education program. But we can't do that until we go out and design these wetlands. So please 


Your generous financial contribution will help SAVE THE FROGS! build a total of 6 wetlands. Three of these will be built at the National Audubon Society's Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch in Elgin, Arizona. This project is a partnership between the SAVE THE FROGS!, the USFWS, the Sky Island Alliance and the Center for Wetlands and Stream Restoration. Last year, SAVE THE FROGS! Wetlands Coordinator Kathlyn Franco assisted Tom Biebighauser in designing these three wetlands. Now we have the chance to build them! Construction is scheduled to begin June 4th, 2017. Your donation will help us build these wetlands and provide habitat for the following endangered species:
  • Chiricahua Leopard Frog (Lithobates chiricahuensis)
  • Mexican Garter Snake ( Thamnophis eques)
  • Desert Pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius)
  • Yellow-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus)
  • Lesser Long Nosed Bat (Leptonycteris yerbabuenae)
  • Mexican Free-tailed Bat (Tadarida brasiliensis)
We will build the remaining three wetlands in the Plumas National Forest in Quincy, CA. These wetlands will help the threatened California Red-Legged Frog (Rana draytonii) and the endangered Western Pond Turtle (Actinemys marmorata). Construction is scheduled for July 4th through July 10th, 2017. This project is in partnership with the US Forest Service and the Center for Wetlands and Stream Restoration. The wetland will be built to function as natural wetlands with little to no maintenance, and are intended to last for many decades or even centuries. The wetlands will be situated about one mile away from a known population of California Red-Legged Frogs, so we expect our new wetlands to provide breeding habitat for the frogs after the first rains arrive. New breeding habitat is critical to the future of California Red-Legged Frogs, which were nearly eaten to extinction by California gold miners in the 1800's. These frogs now face an array of threats, such as non-native American Bullfrogs, deforestation, dredging of streams, draining of wetlands and collision with vehicles on roads. Your tax-deductible contribution today will help keep California's state amphibian alive and well.

SAVE THE FROGS! seeks your support in raising $1,805 which will covers 12 days of wetland construction, flights, housing and salary and help make these wetland projects thoroughly successful.
