SAVE THE FROGS! is making nationwide news today, as three California schools have agreed to abandon their dissection programs for five years as part of our Race To Stop Dissections. Please tune in to San Francisco's ABC7 TV between 4pm and 5pm today to see an interview with me discussing frog dissections. It should be a 2-minute segment. The story also appeared on the websites of Forbes, The Washington Post, Time and the Press Enterprise, and will run on abc.com tomorrow.

.

Congratulations to these schools for abandoning their dissections programs, and putting us one step further towards achieving our goal of getting frog dissections out of all US public schools by 2014:

.
Rancho Verde High School in Moreno, CA
Woodside School in Woodside, CA
Valley High School in North Hills, CA

.

Each school wins a free full-site license of the Digital Frog 2.5 virtual dissection software. Thanks to our Race To Stop Dissections partner the Animal Welfare Institute for all their help!

.
Find out how your school can win the free software here.

Thanks for posting this, Teresa. There was a petition that I signed several months ago to save the frogs from dissection. Do you know if this is the same thing?
