The California Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma californiense) is threatened with extinction due to the widespread destruction of its habitat; high rates of road mortality; and hybridization with invasive species.
The California Fish and Game Commission will vote this Wednesday (March 3rd) on whether to list the California Tiger Salamander as threatened under the state Endangered Species Act. The Commission has failed to list the species as threatened on multiple occasions in the past.
Please send this letter to the California Fish & Game Commision urging them to list the California Tiger Salamander as Threatened under the state Endangered Species Act.
The call for comments period ends this Monday (March 1st), so please send your letter today!
