Default Re: Project Update from Dr. Chaves - Caudata.org Research Grant 2009

Hi, everybody. I´m Giovanni Chaves leader of this project. I think that we have a combination of good luck and the responsability to do the work very well. The local community in our study area did not know the Pandi Mushroom-tongue Salamander, which allowed to increase their interest for this "rare lizard" (as they said to this wonderful animal), mainly among children and young people. To explain to them that this species is endemic, they have appropriated it and have shown the intention to protect this salamander, which is a good start to achieve this goal.

My teamwork and I appreciate the support of caudata.org and amphibian ark to our project and I hope soon to tell more on the progress of this.

Sincerely

Giovanni Chaves-Portilla
