Tonight in Atlanta, the National Association of Biology Teachers will announce they’re formally partnering with Amphibian Ark to avert the amphibian mass extinction.  Here’s the news release.

This is really important. Consider the sheer, numerical power of the partnership:

  • There are 6,000 biology teachers that are in the association…
  • And let’s say each of them has 100 students…
  • And each of those students has a sibling, and 1.5 parents, and 2 grandparents, and 2 close friends — and tells them all about the crisis
  • That’s 6,000 teachers, 600,000 students, another 600,000 sisters and brothers, 900,000 parents, 1.2 million grandparents, and another 1.2 million friends — all informed, spreading the word, demanding and taking action

Like a frog jumping into a pond, the ripple effect of biology teachers rallying behind Amphibian Ark can be transformational for this cause.
