What is a hellbender, you ask?
A Hellbender is a species of giant aquatic salamander. They grow up to 2ft in length and are native to the eastern United States. At one point there were as few as 600 left in the wild. Today, scientists from the region are keeping an eye on populations and in protected areas, the Hellbender populations are stabilizing. The next step is to work on streams that are not in protected areas. The work of the Compact helps to clean up these streams and hopefully someday soon we will see Hellbenders thriving again.
Long live the hellbender!
