Amphibians Crossing!

Since 2002 we have worked to protect early-spring breeding amphibians like the wood frog, spotted salamander, jefferson salamander, and spring peeper during their annual migrations, which often lead them across perilous roadways.

Blue-Spotted Salamander

As winter draws to a close, there is perhaps no more faithful a reminder of the onset of spring than the return of amphibians to woodland vernal pools. Among the earliest to arrive is the State endangered blue-spotted salamander.

Amphibian Conservation

Since the 1970s worldwide amphibian populations have been in decline. Habitat loss is the main cause of declines but pollution, degradation, invasive species, and a changing climate are also important factors.

Headstart program for Eastern Tiger Salamanders

The Eastern Tiger Salamander Headstart Program was started in 2011 as a partnership between NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, Cape May County Zoo, Conserve Wildlife Foundation, and the Association of Zoos & Aquarium.

2016 Photo Contest Winners

In 2016, Conserve Wildlife Foundation launched the “For the Love of Wildlife” Photo Contest to showcase the love for and need to protect New Jersey's wildlife. Over 1,470 entries were received! New Jersey wildlife photographers, CWF board members and staff poured over the entries to choose our winners. First, Second, and Third place winners in both youth and adult categories for 2016 are listed below.

Vernal Pools

In the northeastern United States, vernal pools are home to over 500 species. Changing climatic conditions are jeopardizing these important ecosystems as increasing temperatures and delayed rainfall alter hydroperiod and rising sea‐level threatens complete inundation.
