Default Save Salamanders From Skin-eating Fungus (Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans)

Hello everyone, if you are not already aware, there is a recently discovered disease related to B. dendrobatidis that has similar consequences for salamanders as B.d does for frogs. Please see this previous thread from easternversnat for more information and links, New threat to amphibians: Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans.

A recently released petition is being passed around that hopes to get legislation passed that will hopefully prevent this disease from reaching North America by stopping all trade of salamanders. I urge everyone to sign this petition and help prevent this disease from whipping out more amphibians.
