Messaging and Goals
Humans Need Empowerment
                      May 15, 2007

   A survey of 1,150 British children between seven and 11 found
    half were anxious about global warming and often lay awake
    worrying about it.
   Parents feel anxious and helpless about the environmental
    situation and are passing these feelings on to their children.
   The anxiety many youngsters feel is increased by a sense that
    they are too young to influence events. Denial, resignation,
    cynicism, anxiety, hopelessness and even despair can arise
    from a perception that global problems are overwhelming.
   Secondary school students in Australia are hungry for
    knowledge and for practical ways to deal with what they see in
    the media.
   This sense of crisis can also lead to excitement, stimulation and
   What is important is giving youth a feeling that they can
    individually and collectively make a difference.
Let Frogs Lead the Way
  There is a plan that will work

  Children and their teachers can participate; so
  can everybody

  Media can tell the story, succinctly, emotionally

   Corporations can partner with consumers and be
   seen as socially responsible

  Politicians and governments can publicly make a

  The entertainment industry can make a difference
   Raise $50 million in funding (corporate,
    philanthropic, government)
   Save a select group of amphibian species
    that cannot be saved in the wild
   Boost public confidence and empowerment
    in regard to saving endangered species
   Prime consumers to support the next
Message Cornerstones
   Goal statement: Saving frogs is something
    we can do to save the planet
     Amphibians are “nature’s indicators”: when
      they show a decline, it serves as a warning to
      other species, including humans
     How we respond to the amphibian crisis can
      and will demonstrate how we will respond to
      other environmental and animal crises
Message Cornerstones
   Amphibians
      Play key role in ecosystem – both predator and prey,
       sustaining food web links and delicate balance of nature
      Provide vital biomedicines that offer promising treatments
       for diverse diseases
      Maintain a special place in human culture and religion,
       cherished as agents of life and good luck
   The Problem
      One-third to ½ of all species are threatened with extinction
       after thriving for 360 million years … the single largest mass
       extinction in the history of mankind, comparable
       only to dinosaurs
      Crisis is due to disease (chytrid fungus),
       habitat loss, pollution, pesticides, and
       climate change
Message Cornerstones
   The Solution
                    Amphibian Ark project – worldwide cooperation
                     among zoos and aquariums to keep amphibians
        Rescue amphibians in the wild before the chytrid fungus
         arrives and bring them to zoos for safekeeping; with hope
         they can be released back into environment when fungus
         has run its course
        Individuals and corporations can help by raising awareness
         and critical funds
Message: Complex or Simple?

Strategic Philanthropy*
    Fleishman-Hillard, in partnership with the National Consumers
     League, conducted a CSR survey of Americans and found that:
          “…knowledge of a company’s commitment to social
           responsibility influences purchasing behavior more than lower
    In addition to simply being the right thing to do, in a highly
     competitive marketplace, demonstrating corporate social
     responsibility may be the advantage a company needs to
     distinguish itself from its competitors.

* These slides were developed with U.S. audiences in mind; appropriate regional attitudinal research would be gathered in
     other countries.

Strategic Philanthropy

     “For many, supporting a popular cause is no longer
      optional. It’s what you have to do just to get to the
      starting line with the newest generation of consumers.
      Today’s teens and twentysomethings grew up viewing
      community service as an ordinary pastime, if not a
      college admissions requirement. More than 60 percent of
      the teens surveyed a year ago by youth marketing firm
      Alloy Inc. said they are more likely to buy brands that
      support charitable causes. Their loyalties may have a big
      effect on what their parents purchase.”
