CLS donates $3000 to ALA's North American Goodeid Working Group

The Chicago Livebearer Society is happy to report that our recent Rare Livebearer Auction enabled us to make a substantial donation to the American Livebearer Association's North American Goodeid Working Group (NAGWG).

The NAGWG works on habitat conservation and species maintenance and helps to fund the Fish Ark in Morelia, MX at the University de Mihoacan.

Rare Livebearer Auction raises funds

CLS's fund-raising aucton featured over 100 unique types/species of fish and 175 lots of fish in total.

Forty-four bidders from all over the USA particpated in the opportunity to bid and buy rare livebearers.

Thanks! We got donations from many!

Many thanks to Auction Chair Andy Piorkowski, Don Linder, Bob and Theresa Sturfield, Pat Hartman, Litzi Hartley, Dr. John Lyons, Bryan Anton, Stephan Hopman and many others who helped run the auction and donate fish.

We probably missed some folks, so apologies in advance . . .

A special thanks to Dr. Michael Koech of the Haus des Meeres Zoo in Austria who supplied many goodeids which are not in the US hobby. 

We'd also like to thank you to MIke Drawdy of Imperial Tropicals for donating fish.
