Contributing Members

Maybe you’d like to consider becoming a Contributing Member to help us save amphibians? Read on….


Your support is crucial to saving threatened species and we invite you to become an Amphibian Ark donor, keeping these species afloat!


Check out what some of our amazing supporters and donors have achieved:

  • A second grade class in Upper Arlington Ohio donated $1,762.50 which they raised by holding a frog book read-a-thon, selling tote bags, having a craft sale, and a bake. Our thanks go to Columbus Zoo for bringing this class and the Amphibian Ark together.
  • Adults and children alike have asked that donations be made to Amphibian Ark to celebrate special occasions like weddings, birthdays, graduations, bar and bat mitzvahs – this is a very generous thought, and is very much appreciated.
  • School children in Bisbee Arizona, who wanted to do a good deed for amphibians before their school was closed due to budget cuts. They raised $109 to help with amphibian conservation.
  • Proceeds from book sales, bake sales and naming rights for new amphibian species all have benefitted the Ark!

Our supporters have been amazing in their commitment to helping us – your generous donation will help save amphibians!

Every bequest helps us save more species

We rely on your very generous gifts to continue our vital conservation work. You can help us save amphibian species from extinction by including a gift in your Will to Amphibian Ark. It is a simple process that could make a real difference. We suggest that you use the following wording:
