New Jersey's Rarest Reptiles and Amphibians
Time & Place
Join Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey to learn about the rarest of reptiles and amphibians in New Jersey. In addition to discovering about all of the many different species of reptiles and amphibians in the state, we will also learn about the threats to these small, cryptic critters as well as how to help them cross the road! Come join us as we learn: Where exactly does a frog live? What does a snake do in the winter? How can I help create wildlife habitat?
This event is free and will take place on the Cape May County Library Youtube Page.
For additional information, please call (609) 463-6386 or visit online at www.cmclibrary.org.
This event is considered appropriate for ALL AGES.
What Does Climate Change Mean for Amphibians in New Jersey?
Time & Place
Amphibians are typically referred to as “canaries in a coalmine” when it comes to environmental health. Their biology makes them uniquely susceptible to changes in thermal regimes and water availability. Amphibians in coastal areas, such as in New Jersey, must also be concerned with increased salinity from sea level rise. In this talk, Allegra Mitchell, a wildlife biologist with Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, discusses some of the most pressing climate concerns for amphibians throughout the Garden State and how some species might be able to cope with these changes as the climate crisis continues.
