We continue to learn of amazing activities that happened on New Year’s Eve to ring in the Year of the Frog. The photos above are of students at the Central Zoo in Nepal.  At left, they are tying wrist bands (rakhi) to each other and vowing to stop the mass extinction of amphibians. At upper right, the zoo’s director, RK Shrestha, signs the petition (which you can sign electronically by clicking here). The event was attended by Mr. Tirtha Raj Sharma, Secretary Minister of Forest and Soil Conservation.
