Endangered Species Protection Sought for California, Oregon Salamander Threatened by Logging

KS Wild and conservation allies filed a federal petition for Endangered Species Act protection today for the Siskiyou Mountains salamander, a rare terrestrial salamander that lives in old-growth forests in the Klamath-Siskiyou region of southern Oregon and Northern California. The salamander is threatened by federal land-agency plans to ramp up logging in southern Oregon.
