Lecturer: Valorie Titus, Wildlife Conservation Society
Hosted by the South Fork Natural History Museum, with permission from the Long Island Nature Organization.
This 40-minute lecture focuses on the conservation of the endangered Eastern Tiger Salamander in New York State. The only location within New York State that these salamanders are still found is on Long Island. Populations of the Eastern Tiger Salamander are fragmented due to human interference, such as land development. Fragmentation leads to genetic isolation, which can make conservation very difficult. Please join us for this interesting lecture, especially if you plan to come to our Eastern Tiger Salamander Walk later this evening. This lecture is free to the public.
Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
