Frog Legs Victory in California

Over 100 million frogs are taken out of the wild each year for human consumption. Earlier this month, a SAVE THE FROGS! supporter informed me that the Bernardus Lodge & Winery in Carmel Valley had plans to feature wild-caught frog legs at an upcoming event. I called Bernardus, told them that frogs were rapidly disappearing and requested they not serve frog legs. Chef Cal Stamenov decided not to not order frogs for the event or in the future. This demonstrates the importance of environmental education and SAVE THE FROGS' campaigns to raise awareness of frog extinctions. You can't fix a problem if nobody knows the problem exists...but you CAN fix it if they do know!

"We are fortunate to have an organization such as SAVE THE FROGS! in our local community. I appreciate you taking the time to contact me and share your expertise of the ecological damage created by the frog markets. I wish you the best of success in sharing your knowledge, spreading education and fundraising on behalf of frogs in the future."
--Gina Martin, Assistant to Chef Cal Stamenov, Bernardus Lodge

Please call Gina and thank her and Bernardus Lodge & Winery for their frog-friendly decision!
