Re: Grant for Salamander Conservation and Research
Is it for native countries only? I would be interested in helping the Axolotl population by relocating them to man-made freshwater lakes and ponds. I have been trying to do independent studies on the ecology of certain lakes and ponds in comparison to their natural habitat and, more importantly, habitats they can easily adapt to.
