Meet the newly hatched Tokyo salamanders! Dr. Ruth the director of the National Amphibian Conservation Center joins us today and she answers your questions!


Celebrating and Saving Wildlife:

The animal care staff at the Detroit Zoological Society use innovative ways to work with the animals in their care to have assurance populations of species that are endangered. By supporting the Detroit Zoological Society, you are supporting our conservation work with the Tokyo Salamander and many other species.


 Take Action:

Repurposing items from around your house gives them a second life and keeps them out of the landfill. By making this craft, you’re preventing items from entering the waste stream. Look around your home and see if you have other items that otherwise would end up in the landfill, and see if you can repurpose those items, too!
