The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science (MMNS) offered visitors a rare opportunity to see 25 different species of live frogs and toads from all around the world.
Visitors to the "FROGS!" exhibit got an up-close look at frogs and toads housed in replications of their natural habitats from Asia, Australia, and South America.
About the Exhibit: FROGS: Beyond Green was created by the Audubon Nature Institute. The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Gertrude C. Ford Foundation, the Janet and Luther Ott Charitable Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson, the Walker Foundation, Institute of Museum & Library Services, Regions Bank, Nissan of North America, Inc., Chris and Steve Zachow and other generous supporters.
This project was supported in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, creating strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this exhibit do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
