Legal Summary of Caudata.org US Survey for 2016 USFWS Salamander Ban 1.0

No permission to download
Resources relevant to legal issues,.
The attached PDF document summarizes the results of the Caudata.org member survey carried out in early 2016 in order to present data during the comment period for the USFWS's salamander import and interstate* travel bans that came into effect in March 2016. Please feel free to quote this document in correspondence with government agents or elected officials, but you must cite the document (Caudata.org 2016 Member Survey Summary for USFWS Bsal Rule FWS-HQ-FAC-2015). Please feel free to include the link to this resource.

* Reminder: The interstate transport ban was invalidated in 2017 as a misapplication of the Lacey Act. At the time of posting this resource (March 2021), there is a bill in the Environment and Public Works committee of the US Senate that, if passed into law, will grant USFWS broad discretionary powers to properly impose this travel ban and perhaps other similar rules.

    you got a cooler :D Thats so cool! i normally chill their water down if it gets too warm with clean dechlorinated water when they were in their bigger tanks. i'll need to get one that can work with two tanks at some point. or find them for cheap and get two quiet ones. since im in an apartment.
