On January 24, 2017, our group, Salamander Savers, took a trip to the capitol of Virginia. We talked to three delegates and a senator about the activities that Salamander Savers performs. We also asked them about how to advocate for a state salamander, and if it was possible to remove salamanders from the DGIF bait list. We got a lot of useful information from the people that we talked to, and now we know how to start advocating for a state salamander. Our trip to the capitol was informative and enjoyable. We got to tour the the capitol, listen to the General Assembly while it was in session, converse with our state representatives, and learn how we can make the Shenandoah Salamander the state salamander of Virginia.
