Did you know?

  • Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders (Ambystoma cingulatum) are at imminent risk of extinction. Once a common species, they have suffered a 90% of population in the last 20 years.

  • Once occured in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida but now likely occur only in Florida, and one degraded wetland in Georgia. They haven't been detected in Soth Carolina in over 10 years.

  • A federal recovery plan has been drafted by USFWS and partners, to help guide the conservation of the species.

  • Frosted Flatwoods Salamanders are disappearing, meanwhile most people aren't even familiar with the species. This project is dedicated to elevating the awareness of the species, and its conservation by providing a stunning poster, with a lesson plan, so that teachers can display the beautiful salamander in their classrooms, explore the fascinating and fire-dependent life-cycle, and teach thier students about the Longleaf Pine ecosystem, which was once the predominant habitat of the Southeast, and is now reduced to 3% of its original range.
