From February 8th (this coming Monday) to
March 8th 2010 extended to March 22nd 2010 we are once again running our donations drive for Amphibian Ark. The money raised will become the 2010 Caudata.org Amphibian Research Grant to be administered by Amphibian Ark. All donors will be mentioned on the Amphibian Ark web site, as well as their affiliation to Caudata.org. The 2009 Caudata.org Grant funded a Conservation Assessment of the Mushroom-Tongued Pandi Salamander of Colombia and the research is still ongoing.
- How to donate? From Monday February 8th until March 8th 2010 there is a "Donate" button at the following link: 2010 Donations Drive for Amphibian Ark. You will be donating directly to Amphibian Ark through Paypal and they will be notified that the donation was made as part of the 2010 Caudata.org Grant Fund.
- How much did we raise last year? We raised over US$ 1200 in the last Caudata.org-Amphibian Ark Grant drive. Hopefully we can smash that total this year.
- I hear that we get a special status on the forum? Yes. After you make your donation as part of the drive, copy and paste the receipt from Paypal into a private message to me. I will then give you the member status "2010 Research Grant Donor".
- What kind of research will I be funding? The research projects that competed for last year's grant came from around the world and the titles were:
- Distributional modelling and ecological research on Salamandra algira in Morocco with emphasis on different genetic lineages
