Vencedor da Seed Grant AArk

Seed Grant reportA Amphibian Ark tem o prazer de anunciar o vencedor do programa Seed Grant. Este concurso de concessão de bolsas no valor de 5.000 dólares foi criado para financiar pequenos projetos em fase de arranque que precisam de capital inicial para implementar programas de sucesso a longo prazo que atraiam mais financiamento. Gostaríamos de agradecer o generoso apoio das seguintes pessoas e organizações para criar e apoiar estas bolsas: Da Wildlife Conservation Society, do Andrew Sabin Family Foundation, Chester Zoo, Ronna Erickson, Josie Lowman, Woodland Park Zoo, do European Association of Zoos and Aquariums, y do Naples Zoo, Florida. In November 2013 we produced a report which includes updates from each of the seed grant recipients on the progress of their projects. Low resolution (8.8 MB) and high resolution (33.5 MB) versions of the report are available.
