The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission and its partners work to protect the frosted flatwoods salamander, a fire dependent animal in serious decline. Once common in wetlands throughout the American southeast, it has been reduced to a handful of viable breeding populations in the Apalachicola National Forest and Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge. We follow biologist Pierson Hill.
