Have you ever visited

YES! I love it!

Is there anything you would like us to know about you or your amphibian experience?

I hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Science from Griffith University in Gold Coast, Australia, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. I am a recognized expert on the amphibian disease chytridiomycosis, a topic on which I have published 15 articles in peer-reviewed international scientific journals. My work has been supported by the National Geographic Society, Chase Bank, Patagonia and various philanthropic organizations throughout the world. I have also done research on endangered Hawaiian birds, and on the biophysical properties of amino acids involved in cystic fibrosis. I have taught university courses in Ecology, Vertebrate Biology, Applied Mathematics and Chemistry and am fluent in Spanish. I have climbed mountains in the Himalayas, Alps, Alaska Range, Southern Alps and the Andes. I also teach, record and perform music on a variety of instruments from around the world.


SAVE THE FROGS! is America's first and only public charity dedicated exclusively to amphibian conservation. Our mission is to protect amphibian populations and to promote a society that respects and appreciates nature and wildlife.
