ANNOUNCING! The Biggest Dart Frog Show of the Year, The North American Amphibian Conference (NAAC), will be held the Spring of 2008 in New England and will focus on the efforts to promote "Year of the Frog" along with fundraising for amphibian conservation efforts.

The NAAC will be a 2-3 day event comprised of a banquet with keynote speaker, vendors, lectures, workshops, field trips, raffle and auction. Additionally, a fundraising Barbeque and open house will be
held at Black Jungle Terrarium Supply.

One of our special guest speakers will be Chris van der Lingen of The Netherlands. He will be debuting his long awaited English version of a DVD on Dendrobates pumilio as well as discussing projects that he is currently working on in Panama.

The New Dart Frog Taxonomy;
Chytrid Fungus - What every frog keeper needs to know;

and other topics as they become available

Vendors! We want you here...All of You!! Let's all band together in this Big Event. "Year of the Frog!" is our big opportunity to do the right thing in 2008. The more vendors, the bigger and better this event will be. Join in and support the efforts where fundraising and amphibian crisis awareness are our primary goals. This does not mean you should feel that you have to donate all your profits away, but even a small contribution would help! We realize that we all need to make a living and for most of us, this is our livelihood. W hat your participation does mean, is that we support a common goal. A goal for the good of Amphibian Conservation and Awareness.

Organizers of the event are: Ed Kowalski, Lead Keeper, Department of Herpetology at the Philadelphia Zoo,
Matt Mirabello : Cornell University Department of Natural Resources Graduate Student,
Amanda & Greg Sihler, published authors and owners of Arizona Dendrobate Ranch,
Michael Wallitis and Richard Revis, owners of Black Jungle Terrarium Supply.
