The Hellbender: New York’s Living Fossil – Tonight at 7:00PM

The Eastern Hellbender is a unique salamander found only in the eastern United States. Hellbenders are “living fossils” that have remained virtually unchanged for millions of years, giving us a glimpse into our ecological past. In recent years, this iconic species has declined significantly in New York and throughout its entire range. Join conservation biologist Robin Foster to learn more about the hellbender and how you can help to conserve this amazing amphibian!

Please join us at RTPI (311 Curtis St., Jamestown, NY) at 7:00 for this free and public event.

Bonus: You’ll have a chance to meet SAM (Slimy and Misunderstood)!
