New Jersey's Tigers: The Eastern Tiger Salamander
Time & Place
Cape May City Library; 110 Ocean St., Cape May NJ
Did you know? Biologists and volunteers survey for New Jersey’s “tigers,” and by tigers we don’t mean the big striped cats...we’re talking about Eastern Tiger Salamanders. These large mole salamanders are endangered in New Jersey and only found in 15 vernal pools in the southern most part of the state, including Cape May County. CWF biologist Larissa Smith will discuss their life cycle and the work being done to protect this rare and elusive species.
