Many of us have encountered some of the mole salamanders that live in our local woodlands and wetlands however few understand the ecology and astonishing abilities of these small, mostly subterranean amphibians. Ron Gould, a biologist with Ontario Parks, will review of the types of species you are likely to encounter in your nature hikes, their interesting and often complicated genetic relationships, habitat and seasonal movement patterns, perils and pitfalls to their survival, as well as ways you can improve both our environment for salamanders and your chances of seeing them in the wild.

Ron is a Protected Areas Biologist with Ontario Parks, based out of the Southwest Zone office in London. He travels across 53 parks throughout southern Ontario, with a focus on inventory, monitoring and management of ecological values in provincial nature reserves. He has been with the MNR for 23 years in a variety of biology and habitat restoration roles and continues to have the privilege of hiking some of our rarest and most remote natural areas in search of interesting species and knowledge we can use to help protect them.
