Tiger Salamander

The Salamander Cooperative

By Doug Collicutt  

The Salamander Cooperative is a group of people that want to learn more about the elusive Eastern Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum) (ETS) in Manitoba. Researchers, herp enthusiasts, Manitoba Sustainable Development and are joining forces to promote an effort to find out where this species occurs in Manitoba and to get some idea of the status of its population.
