This week we released 131 captive-bred newts of various life stages into two wetlands in the Munson Sandhills.
For those of you who adopted Wetlands 12, 15, 20, 26, 48, and 73 keep your eyes out. Its possible once the striped newts leave their repatriation wetlands, they could migrate to your wetlands.
So far none of the newts have left the wetlands. This is actually a good thing as we would like them to imprint on their wetland for a while so they are more likely to return to the same one next year. We’ll keep you posted!
