A wonderful new children’s book on some of the world’s rarest salamanders has just been released. It focuses on the Spring Salamanders of Central Texas, all of which have been listed as Threatened or Endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) – the world’s main authority on the conservation statuses of species. I highly recommend this book, as I believe it will help foster an interest and appreciation for all salamanders! I am also very happy to announce that my Save The Salamanders website address has been included on the book’s acknowledgement page. For the lifetime of the book, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to organizations that promote the conservation of amphibians!

Individuals can purchase the book here.
