The EWT celebrated the 10th Leap Day for Frogs this year, which coincides with EWT’s 50th anniversary. To commemorate both milestones, we will share a fun frog fact each Friday throughout the year. Here is how our Leap Day celebrations went this year
The Rough Moss Frog is a Critically Endangered frog species found only on a single mountain range, the Klein Swartberg, in the Overberg district of the Western Cape, South Africa. In 2020 we realized that this little frog was in big trouble.
The Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus) has adapted to thrive in human-altered landscapes. However, this also means they face many risks from humans and their activities.
While Leap Day for Frogs does highlight the threats to these creatures, it also celebrates them and creates an appreciation for them, which is the first step towards recognising their importance.

The Conservation Science Unit has been working on an ongoing project that aims to fill knowledge gaps on the distribution of Endangered species across South Africa.
