Greetings from the Babes In The Cichlid Hobby!!
What kind of cichlids do you like?? What is there status in the wild? Just Google© their location; whether it is Lake Malawi, the Rio Negro, the Congo River System, Madagascar, or Lake Nicaragua. Here you will find the devastating news about your favorite cichlid’s eco system. All are plagued by pollution, over fishing, mineral exploitation, deforestation, hydro-electrical power projects, not to mention global warming, floods, troubled governments and evasive species.
HELP SUPPORT CICHLID RESEARCH AND CICHLID CONSERVATION
How can you help?? What can you do?
Join your fellow cichlid enthusiasts by supporting Cichlid Research and Cichlid Conservation; together we can make a difference! The Babes In The Cichlid Hobby are asking YOU to help by donating items for a silent auction at the American Cichlid Association Annual Convention, July 21 - 14, 2011 in Silver Springs, MD. We can’t do it alone, but as a group, we can make difference!
If you are an Artist, draw us a picture!! If you are a photographer, donate some pictures. If you are a collector of aquarium artifacts, please donate a collectible that will help raise some money!! If you have been published, bring an extra copy and sign it for our auction. Tired of that fish jewelry, donate it!! Maybe you have old publications of aquarium literature that you could donate? It is all for a worthy cause! All of the money will go for Cichlid Conservation and Cichlid Research. Please help us support the Guy D. Jordan Endowment Fund and Paul V. Loiselle Conservation Fund.
Please bring your donations to the convention. If you can't make it, and you are willing to donate, please send a pm. We can help make arrangements. And remember if you don't have anything to donate, you can always bid high on something that catches your eye or make a cash/check contribution.
We will also be making a big push for Anti-Netting Devices in Malawi this year! We know they work, we need to make them stronger, and we need make more. Please donate!!!!!! Your dollars will make an immediate impact on the cichlid habitat in Lake Malawi
