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.
