July 1st, 2013

Last week, we released 16 eastern tiger salamander larvae from our headstart program with NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife and the Cape May County Zoo.

These larvae were released into newly constructed pools as part of our vernal-pool habitat restoration project to create new vernal pools above anticipated sea-level rise to mitigate for climate change.  This project is part of a larger goal to create a stronghold for eastern tiger salamanders in New Jersey.
