We ask for an English translation for the book: Amphibien und Reptilien des Griechischen Festlandes by Benny Trapp sign now

Hello all herpers and friends of reptiles,

My name is Grigoris Deoudis and I am the owner of the Greek Portal for Herps. Many of you maybe you have seen the book "Amphibien und Reptilien des Griechischen Festlandes" (Amphibians and Reptiles of the Greek Mainland). The book has excellent photos and with the little Dutch that I know, I can tell that this book has on field work and observations by Mr. Trapp, very interesting citation (extends to 6 pages), and in depth analysis in every species of the Greek Mainland. In every species one can have a relish to awesome photos and text that extends to 3-4 pages.

Unfortunately the book has published only in German language, but there are many people who are interesting for this book.

Therefore, this is the reason for this petition. If we can collect a considerable amount of signatures, we can "ask" from the publisher to give it a second thought and publish the book also in English language.

Following is the (machine) translated Biography from Germany to English, taken form the personal webpage of Mr. Benny Trapp (www.bennytrapp.de):

Benny Trapp is occupied since its early childhood with nature and animals, above all however the amphibians and reptiles of Europe. After 13 years school it terminated first the commercial theory in a renowning photo specialist shop over directly in the connection the second training to begin as a photographer. After the civil service as bird-waited on the island Fehmarn he worked some years as a branch manager in a Portrait Studiound specialized in model and stage photography in black and white.

The nature photography it operated always besides to it from the initial hobby meanwhile to head the source of income developed. We find picture and text publications in magazines and books of different publishing houses. Its countless journeys led it and others to Tanzania, Costa Rica, into which the USA, which to Turkey and Iran as well as to Croatia, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Sweden and into some other European states

In Greece he found its second homeland where he since some years the protection project for the receipt of the last Europä Basiliskenchamäleons (Chamaeleo africanus) leads.

Its special interest in this country it perpetuated the reptiles and amphibians of the Greek mainland , which appears at the end of of 2006 in the NTV (nature and animal publishing house, Münster) beside numerous articles now also in a book over .

    I feel sorry for the publisher that will see here a good opportunity to buy the rights, do the translation, print the book and distribute it to find out no one will buy it. But what the hell here's my signature.
