Regular readers of my blog know frogs rank as one of my favorite animals (right above pika and wolves, although all animals are really my favorite). Frogs have fascinated me for my entire life–as a young girl, I built special frog habitat in my backyard, and as an adult I serve as an advisory council member for the nonprofit, Save the Frogs, which holds an annual Save the Frogs Day each year. The National Wildlife Federation works regularly with Save the Frogs, and cosponsored an event in Yosemite National Park last year and several events across the country in 2013 such as a 5K run in Seattle.
To celebrate this special frog holiday, I thought I would share my top ten frog photos from my encounters with these remarkable creatures. To learn more about how you can help frogs, read Frogs Need Our Help, So Hop to It! by NWF’s Anne Bolen.
