Gulf Coast Reptiles and Amphibians Dying
Critical Need Addressed by Local Organizations

EcoVivarium and San Diego Herpetological Society to host fundraiser luncheon on Sunday, August 1st featuring keynote speaker Donald Schultz as seen on Animal Planet and Discovery Channel.

San Diego, CA July 26, 2010: EcoVivarium and San Diego Herpetological Society have discovered a growing reptile and amphibian crisis in the Gulf Coast Oil Disaster region. There are volunteers and organizations working to rescue the animals but, there is a severe shortage of funding. The Gulf Aide Project is a grassroots effort to fill the G.A.P. in funding these rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

There are hundreds of varieties reptiles and amphibians found throughout the Gulf Coast region. The affected species, especially the critically endangered turtles and frogs, are facing catastrophic losses. The damage is not limited to existing animals, but extends to future generations due to disruption of the breeding season and loss of nesting and reproductive habitats. Some species already hovering on the brink of extinction could disappear forever.
