A new salamander disease is spreading around the world and we need your help to find out where it’s going! If you find a dead or sick salamander in the wild, please take pictures and upload them to this project as soon as possible. If you cannot identify the animals because they are too long dead, these are still important records, so please still take pictures and upload! If your salamander is not dead, but looks like it has weird skin sores or marks, we also want to see these. We will review all records and if warranted, may direct an emergency response to that area to investigate.
If your salamander is dead and you think you know why (i.e., hit by a car, stepped on, partially eaten by an animal, etc.), then please make a comment in the description box about this helpful observation.
Also, please remember that this project is not just for the United States. Records of dead salamanders from anywhere in the world are requested. So far, we have received records from the USA, Central America, Canada, Europe, and a few from Asia. We do not yet have any records from South America.
