Fire Salamanders could soon be gone forever - in conversation with Matt Ellerbeck

Fire Salamanders are suffering huge decline in the Netherlands and scientists don't know why. Although it is known that a fungus called "BS" is wreaking havoc on salamander populations, much more research needs to be done.

RAVON, the Reptile, Amphibian and Fish Conservation Netherlands is setting up breeding and captive facilities to help the remaining population, which has shrunk to a mere 4 %.

WILD TIME has talked to salamander conservationist Matt Ellerbeck about the fire salamanders and more.
