New DEEP-Published Book on Amphibians and Reptiles Makes a Great Holiday Gift

All Proceeds Go Toward Conservation of Connecticut’s Reptiles and Amphibians

(HARTFORD)โ€”Looking for a great holiday gift for a wildlife enthusiast on your list, while also contributing to a great cause? Consider purchasing Conservation of Amphibians and Reptiles in Connecticuta book recently published by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).

This book provides a new twist on the traditional atlas-style update on reptiles and amphibians. It takes conservation efforts beyond the recovery of any one species, providing a broader understanding of key conservation challenges and exploring ways we can begin to address โ€“ and hopefully resolve โ€“ the decline in many groups of reptiles and amphibians.By purchasing this book, you are also contributing to the conservation of the very species you’ll be learning about, as all proceeds from the sale of this publication go toward the conservation of Connecticut’s reptiles and amphibians.

The 305-page, detailed text includes 131 color photos, species account maps, and conservation solutions for the complex challenges faced by Connecticut’s amphibians and reptiles.While it serves as a companion publication to Amphibians and Reptiles of Connecticut and Adjacent Regionswritten by Michael W. Klemens (Bulletin 112 published by CT DEEP; 1993), this book takes an in-depth look at hidden ecological impacts of human actions. The authors of the new book, Michael W. Klemens, Hank J. Gruner, Dennis P. Quinn, and Eric R. Davison, seek to help the reader understand the conservation challenges faced by amphibian and reptile species and to help us create better approaches to conservation in the future. These concepts apply far beyond the borders of Connecticut and can inform conservation actions anywhere.

The book is currently available for purchase (by check or cash only) for $54.95 at the CT DEEP Wildlife Division’s Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area, 341 Milford Street (Route 69), in Burlington, Connecticut. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Note: State Offices will be closed on Friday, Dec. 24 in observance of Christmas. The book can also be purchased online at the CT DEEP Bookstore here: https://www.ctdeepstore.com/Wildlife_c24.htm

This season, why not give a gift that gives twice, and help support Connecticut’s wildlife!
