Frogging in South African National Parks - yay or nay?

Unread post by Elsa » Thu Oct 06, 2016 1:10 pm

Frogging in South African National Parks - yay or nay? South Africa is blessed with a rich and unique frog diversity, yet very few species are commonly known to the general public. Sadly, frogs from around the world are rapidly going extinct due to a vast array of natural and man-made threats. It is imperative to the survival of frogs that more people become aware and engage with this fascinating part of South Africa’s natural heritage.

"Frogging" is a term used by wildlife enthusiasts to describe the activity of searching for frogs in the wild. Our national parks can provide a unique platform to promote frogging in the ecotourism industry. This questionnaire aims to gauge public interest and preferences regarding the ecotourism potential of frogs in South Africa. The information generated from your participation in this process will guide future ecotourism planning and can aid conservation research.
