Our Dearest Fiends,

This report covers the period from June 01, 2022 to September 24, 2022, and is our thirteenth report on the project of Safeguarding Frogs and Birds in Masuria, Poland.

Finally we can give you the most amazing news!

On the 9th of September 2022 our project oficially started. If you think it was easy to begin our journey, you are totally wrong!

We were forced to apply for a building permit and due to this we had to hire an architect, construction project manager, and construction inspector. These salaries were not a part of our budget, but it seems beurocrats don't care. Additionally this process took us the whole summer, so we have not much time left this year. The winter is almost here!

The growing popularity of the Masuria region puts nature under a lot of pressure, which can result in the destruction of the environment. To avoid this, sustainable development must be a priority.

We are in a process of digging a ground to create a foundation for tourist paths. Huskatlen Co. was awarded a contract, and already started its work. Two surveyor technicians were working in our park for two days to mark out the paths. This tourist path work should be completed by the end of this year.

Also we are planning a planting work for this year, and this should begin after the 15th of October, 2022.

We will send all the pictures with the next report. It might be right before Christmas, so we hope we can get you some snowy images to make your Christmas white.

All the best, and keep your fingers crossed!

Dear Friends,

It is about the time to write another report, and this one is a really special one.

It covers the period from February 3,2022 to May 31,,2022, and is our twelfth report on the project of Safeguarding Frogs and Birds in Masuria, Poland.

In the last report we have informed you about receiving a letter from the Marshal's Office stating that they might have additional funds for the grants. We have filled out all the documents requested by the office, and guess what ....... we got it! We really, really got it!

On the 25th of February, 2022 we have signed an agreement, and right now are waiting for a building permit, because the previous one was no longer valid. If everything goes well we should start a contruction of the paths in August 2022.

This good news does not mean we don't need donations anymore!
We do need them because we have not included the excavation of the pond in the overall project since there was no problem with the water there.

The last season was extremely dry, and for the first time we are facing a water issue in the whole area there. Our fire-bellied toads had no place to return for mating this spring, therefore this excavation is our major concern now.

We really appreciate your wonderful support, but please keep it in mind we still need your help!

Dear Friends,

First of all we would like to thank you for your recent donations. It means a lot to us and keeps us going!

Patrycja, Katarzyna, Anna, Bartlomiej, Kinga, Radoslaw, Matt and Lucyna - many thanks to all of you for believing in our venture. Your help is greatly appreciated!  

This report covers the period from October 08,2021 to February 02,2022, and is our eleventh report on the project of Safeguarding Frogs and Birds in Masuria, Poland.

At the end of one of previous quarters we have reported that the amount of money dedicated to the Measure 5.3. Protection of biological diversity, scheme A grant competition was not enough to finance all winning projects. 

On January 13, 2022 we have received a letter from the Marshal's Office stating that they might have additional funds for the grants (please see attached). We have filled out all the documents requested by the office, and waiting for the results.

Let's keep our fingers crossed!

With best regards,
Grazyna Polkowska

Dear Friends,

It is about the time to write another report which covers the period from June 08, 2021 to October 07, 2021. This is our tenth report on the project of Safeguarding Frogs and Birds in Masuria, Poland.

At the end of the last quarter we have reported that the amount of money dedicated to the Measure 5.3. Protection of biological diversity, scheme A grant competition was not enough to finance all the applicants who met the grant requirements.

On the 31st of August, 2021 we could hear from the Marshal's Office again, and believe it or not, we were told that they might have additional funds for the grants, but the Marshal's Office would like to know if we are ready to sign a project agreement by the end of September.
Of course, we have replied "yes" right away, but we have not heard from them since then.

Let's keep our fingers crossed!

We are very greatful to all of you for your continuing support! Since we are receiving donations from all over the world no location suprises us, but just recently we have received 6 donations from Taiwan, and, you know what .... these were acts of gratitude and appreciation for Poland for donating Covid-19 vaccines to Taiwan.

This is how the world should work globally!
Thank you very much Taiwan! Your help is greatly appreciated.

Actually it would be nice to know what countries our donors are coming from, and who cares about the welfare of the frogs?

We love you all!

With best regards,
Grazyna Polkowska

Dear Friends,

We are sending to you another report which covers the period from February 08, 2021 to June 07, 2021 and this is our ninth report on the project of Safeguarding Frogs and Birds in Masuria, Poland.

"The third time's lucky"?

Not this time!

As you already know, we have applied for the Measure 5.3. Protection of biological diversity, scheme A grant for the third time in August 2020.

After a few steps of a very strict selection process we were listed as the applicant who met all the requirements to be considered for a grant (see the list attached), but due to the competition allocation amount our project landed below the threshold point.

In simple words the amount of money dedicated to this competition was not enough to finance all the applicants who met the grant requirements.

Well, we are sad and tired, but our mind goes into the other direction now.

On our GlobalGiving site we have changed the project amount to $125 000, and from this point we are not counting on the government money anymore.

Just recently we have been recognized by MoneyTransfers.com as one of the top 15 Polish charities. Please read about it in the link right below:

Once again we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for your continuing support. Truly, without you it would not have happened!
