Conservation of the Hellbender

The world’s third largest salamander, reaching almost 40cm in length, is a real risk in North America due to the destruction of its natural habitat and an increase in the incidence of Chytridomycosis.

This project aims to protect the waterways in which this remarkable, large salamander lives. It also studies their behaviour and reproduction ecology. This project was started by the world association of zoos and aquaria (WAZA).
