l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

5 lined skink & red backed salamander

Something amazing to find is the 5 lined skink. It is Ontario's only lizard but is protected as it is a species at risk. Threatened. If you ever find one. DO NOT give out the location were you found it. It must be protected. You can report it though to places like Georgian bay biosphere,or MNR. If you ever turn over rocks looking for little beings underneith. Always put the rock back exactly how you found it and do it gently. Remember this IS somebody's home and protection. The red backed salamander is a more common species to find. However they to are not seen as often as they used to be. Never handle these little creatures if you have any creams,especially bug stuff or even sunscreen. It can harm them. I feel it is enough to see them. Handling them just causes due stress to these tiny creatures. Just enjoy and keep them safe.
