Volunteers work to save terrestrial critters from mankind (motor vehicles)

This article, from today’s NY Times, does a nice job of highlighting the field work of dedicated volunteers – some of whom actually qualify to be called herpetologists – in saving migrating salamanders on their way to vernal pools. This annual event is happening right now in some southern states and when warm spring rains come the season will continue here in Vermont and the rest of New England.
