I am glad to hear this!The World Bank will have no direct financial gain from this and we are trying to control what financial gain there is...profits would go to the land owners and indiginous working class not governmental "big wigs." Thanks for being patient.-Sean
Amazing... this is the same thing we heard from land owners in the Tarapota region. When I first heard about this project I was excited, but it's lost it's appeal after hearing some Peruvian landowners explain the situation. Who wouldn't be mad after being told they will get $10us per frog and now being told they are only going to get s/1 - s/3 ($.33-$1 US) per frog. Granted, I didn't talk to Rainer or the smuggler we missed by less than 2 weeks buying frogs, so this just one side of the story.incrediblepets said:One thing that became clear,however disturbing, that the lodge owners (at least one in particular) were quite vocal about was the apparent activity, at least in their opinion, that frogs either collected by Rainer or European associates of his were being smuggled out of Peru ahead of permits being issued.
