Threatened and Endangered Species of New Jersey

"   More and more as we come closer and closer in touch with nature and its teachings are we able to see the Divine and are therefore fitted to interpret correctly the various languages spoken by all forms of nature about us" .

George Washington Carver

Are there really bobcats in New Jersey? What is the license plate bird anyway?

I've heard of some turtle that’s endangered in the state that drives developers crazy - what makes a turtle so important that it would stop a housing project? Piping Plovers – why are they so important?

Did you know we have an endangered salamander that’s called a tiger living in southern New Jersey and that you only have one good month out the year to catch a glimpse of them?  How does the state manage and protect these species?

If you would like to find out more about New Jersey's threatened and endangered species and learn about their unusual life histories then come celebrate them from a photographer's and naturalist's point of view. This program is geared for civic groups, grades 8-12, and environmental consultants - developers welcomed!!.
