Salamander Saturday


Salamander Saturday is an initiative started by FCSal to raise awareness about salamanders, their habitats, and their role in the ecosystem. We are encouraging organizations around the world to hold an event on this day promoting global unity in the effort to protect salamanders.

The Salamander Fund

We are a small non-profit designed to provide funding for salamander research, education, and conservation initiatives. You can help us help salamanders by donating, attending events, and purchasing merchandise.
