Default Greetings from San Francisco Bay area

My name is Robert,
I have been involved in herps for over 30 years, at times as part of my job. Currently I am working on a road mortality survey project with Taricha torosa torosa. I am covering 1.8 kilometers of road for the entire season (8 months), doing weekly surveys. The goal is to determine which section of road has the highest mortality and why (habitat, lack of safe crossing etc) and then to have appropriate amphibian crossing culverts installed.
I also do a bit of bullfrog removal in and around Ambystoma californiense habitat.

Have a good one,

Robert

I look forward to more sharing of information and resources with fellow Caudata members nationally and internationally. Only together can we work to save a much overlooked group of creatures that play a far greater role in their ecosystems then previously thought.

welcome. I'm in the Bay area and I know of several spots for T. torosa... One road is already protected but I'm interested in what you guys are coming up with.
