You may know Mya-Rose Craig better as ‘Birdgirl’, as she has been publicly sharing her passion for birds, wildlife and nature for the majority of her 18 years, but what may not be so well documented is her love of amphibians.
“I am hugely excited to become a Patron of Froglife and look forward to us working together to create more opportunities to help encourage children and teenagers from minority ethnic backgrounds connect with the natural world.”
Our Nature Champions
|Martin Whitfield, MSP for South Scotland- championing the adder: “Having always taken a keen interest in nature and wildlife, I’m delighted to become a Nature Champion for Scotland’s adders. They’re well known as the UK’s only venomous snake, but it’s perhaps less well known that their numbers have been in serious decline over recent years. I’m pleased to make this commitment to champion adders and hopefully contribute to the protection of this special creature in Scotland.”||Emma Harper, MSP for South Scotland- championing the natterjack toad and ponds and small lochs: “I look forward to continue to promote the natterjack toad as a Nature Champion and in May I highlighted this special, rare species on Endangered Species Day by raising a motion in parliament to garner political support for its protection. I am proud to represent the South Scotland region which is home to the natterjack Toad – Dumfries & Galloway – the only place in Scotland where you will find this species.“|
The majority of Froglife’s funding comes through projects – our practical conservation work, education or learning schemes and research. The list below shows every organisation that is currently supporting our busy programme to help amphibians and reptiles thrive.
