Giving Tuesday

IMG_0047Today is #GivingTuesday, a global movement dedicated to giving back to local charities and to those in need.  In the spirit of Giving Tuesday we ask that you to consider supporting wildlife conservation in Virginia by giving to the Virginia Nongame Fund.  We hope that our Frog Friday campaign over the past year has provided some insight for you concerning the need for conservation of these important species as well as many others that are listed as species of greatest conservation need in Virginia’s Wildlife Action Plan.  For those still looking for holiday gifts and also interested in supporting conservation, you can check out the Virginia Wildlife eStore. There you will find some great items for outdoor enthusiasts including our Virginia is for Frog Lovers t-shirt. Proceeds from the Virginia Wildlife eStore go toward wildlife education and connecting people to the outdoors.
