The 28th April 2018 is Save the Frogs Day, now in its 10th year.
Save The Frogs Day aims to provide frog enthusiasts with educational materials, ideas and inspiration to enable them to educate local communities about amphibians.
So this is a great opportunity to tell you about two memberships you could give a nature lover or frog, toad or snake lover - hop to it!
Froglife has been working to conserve native amphibians and reptiles since 1989. It has initiated national and regional projects and been a central voice for advice on issues on reptile and amphibian conservation. Froglife's work covers three areas:
Give a Froglife Friendship and your gift will contribute to the conservation of the UK’s amphibians and reptiles, and your loved one will receive a special pack with:
A single and joint friendship is available and prices start at £18 for a year.
Give ARC a voice to the UK’s amphibians and reptiles, enabling the charity to improve habitats and save species.
ARC works on conservation, education, influencing policy and legislation, conservation activities underpinned by scientific research and it runs projects and campaigns.
Give an ARC Friendship as a gift, and for as little as £2 per month you will receive:-
If you’d like to purchase an ARC Friendship as a gift, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Froglife also have virtual gifts such as Protect a Toad, Fight for Frogs, Sponsor a Snake. These are all £10 and will help with conservation work to protect these animals.
And similarly you can sponsor any of these animals with ARC and the sponsorship is part of various campaigns with targets to reach so your gift can be part of a specific project.
Amphibians and reptiles need all the help they can get because they are vital to biodiversity and a healthy planet so give your support and the nature lover in your life a really meaningful gift and help their cause.
So I thought it would be an opportunity to raise awareness of a couple of sheep societies and the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, too. They all run memberships, and it's a great way to support their work to raise awareness of sheep breeds and discover more about this woolly animals.
The Hebridean Sheep Society exists to promote the virtues of the Hebridean sheep. It works to promote the conservation and preservation of Hebridean sheep as a distinctive, viable breed, and to educate and inform the public of the virtues of the Hebridean sheep. Join the Hebridean Sheep Society here The Shetland Sheep Society has almost 500 members around the UK and further afield. Their members are passionate about the breed and you don't have to own sheep to join. The society aims to support the breed. You'll find membership benefits here and you can join here. The Rare Breeds Survival Trust works to monitor, save and promote rare and native farm breeds. There's a list of rare breeds here for equines, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry.
