In the past I have found the
Jefferson Salamanders, the Fairy shrimp
and the Chimney Building Crayfish, in the Cawthra Bush.

Important, yes but now there is recognition of something more important as it deals with the habitat requirements of Jefferson Salamanders, necessary for designing proper conservation plans.

Natalie Helferty is an amphibian biologist & natural heritage ecologist with expertise regarding the Jefferson Salamander and actively involved in protecting the habitat of this endangered species within the Jefferson forest in Richmond Hill on the Oak Ridges Moraine.  She has written a report for Save the Rouge System Inc. and the City of Toronto, called

Natural Heritage Planning for Amphibians and their Habitats

It is a 71 page report, on page 18 & 19 is reference to what I have both observed and supplied two pictures of, Jefferson Salamanders nesting/denning communally.
On page 60, References, it states

"Barber, Don. 2000. Friends of the Cawthra Bush. Personal Communication."

It is very rare for a grassroots group to be honoured so but we earned it.




It will make a difference!
