There are only two dendrobatid projects in the running? I'm sure all projects are worthy, just wondering how far afield the projects can run.

I didn't participate in frogday, but if I were to vote to support one of the things listed I would vote madagascar, even though I do not keep any species of mantellas. Mainly posted here because I wanted to bump this thread as I posted a "less important response" in another Science and Conservation thread that I feel is not as important as this.

I'd probably vote Madagascar as well....

Just curious, when it says D. tinctorius (blue morph) are we talking about azureus? I was unaware that this was an endangered morph....

Just wanted to say thanks to those who voted for Mitsinjo's project in Andasibe. It will be a large help, particularly having funds to install another rain barrel and to construct additional shelves for more terraria in the fall. I'll do my best to post photos as they are emailed to me, or as things progress in October once I return. Again, thanks for the support!

Great to see the funds being used for something so quickly and having a positive impact. So often one never hears how non-profits use the money earned. Great job!

Great work Devin! It looks like your facility is going to be miles cleaner than my frog room! Good luck in all your good work.

Richard.
