Save the frogs and highlight their plight, while taking part in a fun conservation walk around Johannesburg Zoo on Sunday morning.
FROGS will be the highlight of a conservation walk at the Johannesburg Zoo on Sunday, 27 March.

Five kilometres will be a single lap around the zoo; and 10 kilometres will be two laps.

The purpose of the walk, according to Candice Segal, the zoo’s acting brand and communications manager, “is to raise awareness about the zoo and amphibian breeding programme, and also to protect South Africa’s endangered frog species”.

Everyone is welcome to participate, and people will learn about protecting these important animals.

Walkers must arrive at the zoo in Forest Town at 7am, and the walk will begin at 7.30am. Tickets will be available on the day at the zoo at R40 per person.
