Members of Salamander Savers 4-H club watched as the red salamander slipped one step closer to becoming the state salamander of Virginia. Five young environmentalists didn't stop long to celebrate their victory, instead they walked over to the Senate office buildings and started lobbying for the next round of voting that will happen in the upcoming weeks. Salamander Savers 4-H club hopes that soon the red salamander will be a state emblem and raise awareness for salamander populations across the state. Please contact your State Senator to support the club's environmental efforts or visit their website for more details: https://savethesalamanders.weebly.com
