What is Salamander Saturday?
Salamander Saturday is an initiative started by FCSal to raise awareness about salamanders, their habitats, and their role in the ecosystem. We encourage organizations around the world to hold an event on this day and to share their events with FCSal through social media using #SalamanderSaturday, thereby promoting global unity in the effort to protect salamanders.
Interested in hosting an event?
You can help by creating a day for international salamander awareness. Your Salamander Saturday event should be catered to your organizations strengths and schedules; it can be as simple as hosting an education table, or as involved as a fundraising event. FCSal will be partnering with American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK), Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC), and Amphibian Survival Alliance to reach a broad audience of amphibian lovers and to make Salamander Saturday a success!
If you would like to participate in Salamander Saturday, please email us at email@example.com and share your plans with us. Make sure to send us the event tile/program name, organization hosting, location/time, and website (if applicable).
All Salamander Saturday events will be promoted via FCSal.org and our Facebook page, so please take pictures and have fun spreading the word about salamander conservation! If you would like to host a fundraiser for FCSal, we would be happy to supply you with necessary materials including our Chopsticks for Salamanders stainless steel chopsticks.
