celebrating frog day
The goal of the event was to spread awareness of frog extinction and importance of amphibian conservation. One third of the world’s amphibian species are threatened with extinction and up to 200 frog species have completely disappear since 1979, making frogs the most threatened group of animal on the planet!.
The event which was supported by “SAVE THE FROG”, a non-profit organization dedicated to amphibian conservation held in two categories, one was Art competition and another petition for ‘No To Atrazine’. The glass house of the college was embellished with brilliant art related to frog conservation. All together there were 30 participants in Art competition and the best fourth were judged and prizes were distributed accordingly.
“This is the first event of its kind in IAAS”, claimed Sanjeev Wasti , president of YSD.“We are very happy to have successfully completed the event and look forward to organising higher versions of the same in the days to come”, he added.
