Amphibian Ark must raise $50-$60 million to save 500 of the most endangered species. While a $100,000 corporate or philanthropic gift allows a donor to “adopt” a frog species (or a toad, newt, salamander, or caecilian) and have the option to join scientists on a rescue mission, Amphibian Ark is asking you to support the companies below, as a percentage of the sales made from these books and other products are being generously donated to the Amphibian Ark.

We also have an Amphibian Art page on our site, which features wonderful artwork and photos by a number of artists and photographers.

PP is for Pangolin is for Pangolin

P is for Pangolin, an alphabet of obscure, endangered and under-appreciated animal. Written and Illustrated by Anastasia Kierst.

What is a pangolin? Better yet, what is a yeti crab and how does it grow food? Learn fun and fascinating facts about these and many other little-known creatures from across the globe. Each animal is richly depicted in bright, playful watercolor illustrations. The back of the book features four teacher resource pages with thought-provoking activities written by the author, a certified teacher. In addition, there is a section dedicated to conservation for readers who want to take action. Even avid wildlife enthusiasts are sure to learn something new from this extraordinary alphabet book. Personalized copies, signed by the author are available.

The author, Anastasia Kierst, had her heart stolen years ago by an especially charming, one-eyed, three-footed Vietnamese Fire-bellied Toad named Lucky. She has been enamored with amphibians ever since.

Head to the Catching Summer shop, and be sure to mention Amphibian Ark in the “Note” section after clicking the “Add to Cart” button. $1 USD will be donated for each book purchased.

frogutsFroguts

Froguts, a developer of Bio-eLearning software, is widely known for its computer simulations of dissections and labs for K-12 and Higher Education. Our software engages students with highly immersive and interactive simulations of anatomy and physiology. It uses audio narration, captioned text, and realistic 3-D, to deliver key concepts within the theory and foundations of Biology. Each topic is presented in a layered systems based approach that integrates inquiry as well as National Science and Technology Standards. Students are assessed after each level with randomized quizzes or tests, and are given a printable certificate when they complete each module.

University studies indicate that simulated dissections like ours significantly enhance comprehension of the curriculum objectives when used in conjunction with traditional dissection. However our software was also designed to be effectively used as stand-alone program, in lieu of lab costs and set up time. In doing so, Froguts supports both approaches and empowers educators to engage even greater numbers of students with essential biological concepts. Our online service  provides all the following modules: Frog, Squid, Starfish, Cow Eye, Owl Pellet, Fetal Pig, and Genetics Lab (Pea Lab and Fruit Fly Lab). To learn more about us please visit our web site at: www.froguts.com

Froguts is proud to donate 30% of all sales from this page to Amphibian Ark.

“If Frogs Could Talk”

If frogs could talk to us what would they say? In If Frogs Could Talk, frogs do talk to special children all over the world to tell them how important frogs are and that they need help from us. One of those frogs, Harold teaches his new friend Grace all about frogs, how they live and what makes them important and why we need to help save the frogs.

Harold is very happy that this is the year of the frog and wants to donate half of all the profits from this book to Amphibian Ark, a most worthy organization that realizes just how important frogs are.
