Fire Salamanders (Salamandra salamandra) are suffering massive declines in the Netherlands, and scientists do not know why. Researchers from all over are scrambling to find a cause for these declines and save the salamanders before it’s too late. The Reptile, Amphibian, and Fish Conservation Netherlands (RAVON) is setting up breeding and captive facilities to help save the remaining salamanders. They need financial help with housing and caring for these amazing creatures. Wild Time talked to salamander conservationist Matt Ellerbeck about the Fire Salamanders and more.
