Re: Grant Proposals for Committee
 
The committee came to a unanimous decision in selecting number 2 on this list to receive the 2009 Caudata.org Grant: "Pandi mushroom-tongue salamander Project: Conservation status assessment of a threatened Andean salamander from Colombia". The recipient was notified today by Amphibian Ark director Dr. Kevin Zippel.

Thank you to everyone who participated, either by contributing to the grant and/or voicing opinions on each proposal. We intend to make this an annual event so watch out for another AArk donations drive here at Caudata.org this winter.
