Be an ambassador for Salamanders! Help the National Zoo help Appalachian Wildlife.

Salamander The Salamander Ambassadors are a group of Friends of the National Zoo volunteers who are working to help Smithsonian's National Zoo help salamanders from Appalachia. For all of 2013, we will be raising money and awareness for these Jewels of Appalachia. Our goal is to raise enough money to build a sophisticated, mixed-species exhibit in the Reptile Discovery Center. The new exhibit will feature 10 salamander species that can all be found in Virginia.
