I realize that. They were introduced deliberately to the USA. There have been efforts to control them, but people love them.
We have more water to steward.
Reminds me of a PBS show on slime molds, and how they can move through mazes to preferred food sources. Pretty amazing.
@SkovandOfMitaze Look what I dug up for you: a short film about Pete Seeger’s Hudson River Clearwater project; He was quite the environmentalist and teacher.
(1362) Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Part 1 - YouTube
Thanks. Watching it right now. I’ll definitely subscribe to their channel and watch them. Finished watching the Netflix Fantastic Fungi documentary earlier. It was good. Especially with their footage. I felt like at times it was a bit hyperbolic on claims though.
In the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater video it’s really inspiring to see all these kids snd teens involved. I am curious to see how some of them are doing now concerning environmentalism.
Is there a better thread for this?
Everything just really makes Rachel Carson’s thoughts more and more evident.
“But man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.”
This morning I was going through some of the posts by Alabama Water Watchers and seen a species mentioned I have not known before. It’s the “ Necturus alabamensis “ or commonly known as the Alabama/ Blackwater Riverdog and it’s a perennibranch salamander about 6-8 inches long.
States that as there are more and more Corbicula clams ( a genus of clams native to asia but invasive in USA) there are less and less of these salamanders.
Amphibians are pretty neat but definitely one of the species I know the least about. We have several salamander species in alabama near me. One I really want to see in the wild is the Siren reticulata which is a 2 foot long salamander in the lower alabama delta.
