Rep: ignatz is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Hello from the high dry and almost caudate-less desert

Hi - I'm mostly an in situ conservation guy based in New Mexico - I'm presently working on two caudate related projects: I build wetlands and improve cattle tanks to make them better amphibian habitat, and have just embarked on a project to ascertain the conservation status of Ambystoma mavortium in the state. A BIG problem here is that larvae of several subspecies are sold as bait ("waterdogs"), and either escape or are released, where they're suspected of spreading disease, including Bd and iridoviruses, and where they genetically "pollute" local populations. I'm interested in communicating with anybody interested in either set of issues. If you've built a successful wetland habitat for amphibians anywhere in the world, I'm all ears and eyes!

I'm also the regional chair of the North American Native Fish Association...if I'm allowed to even mention that on a caudate-centric site...
