Salamander season has been a bit "spotty" this year. First it was too cold. Then it was too dry. Many of the salamander fans in Ohio were starting to think we would miss out.
|John Howard- a naturalist outstanding in his field, er, vernal pool.|
And why should we care if people see salamanders? Because now these ladies want to help us protect salamanders and their natural habitats. Once people have a close encounter with the inhabitants of vernal pools, they want to spread the good word. We can't protect these marvelous woodland wonders, unless people know about them.
These creatures have evolved little from their beginnings, their design so perfect- they need not evolve.
Humans should admire their ability to continue as their God intended- perfectly, wondrous creatures.
We live in a better, richer for their existence.
