Leap over to Camden's Adventure Aquarium for a two-day celebration of Save the Frogs, part of the "Frogs: Nature's Messenger" exhibition. Proceeds will support the Save the Frogs Foundation.
You will see more than 20 kinds of frogs, including the huge African bullfrog, the red-eyed tree frog, and the golden poison dart, and meet some of the colorful amphibians as they make an appearance with the aquarium's animal experts and biologists. To make the amphibian experience complete, there will also be a Frogger station, where visitors can play the '80s arcade game.
The Save the Frogs Foundation's mission is to protect amphibian populations and promote respect and appreciation for nature and wildlife. This will also be the exhibition finale of "Frogs: Nature's Messenger."
