Jolly Designation

New effort aims to save salamander

Jolly Designation

The Jollyville Plateau salamander may soon receive special designation from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. At the city's June 16 Environmental Board meeting, FWS and city officials will discuss details of a candidate conservation agreement with assurances, a conservation strategy that can be implemented before the critter is formally listed as threatened or endangered.
