What is the aim of Leap Day for Frogs?

The EWT Threatened Amphibian Programme will use the day towards the protection and conservation of three of our most endangered frog species: Amathole Toad , Pickersgill’s Reed Frog and Western Leopard Toad. For more information visit http://www.leapdayforfrogs.org.za
