Guest Presentation September 13th 7:30pm Matt Ellebeck

Camp Kawartha Environment Centre, Peterborough ON

Matt Ellebeck ( is a Salamander Advocate and Conservationist and a Partner of Amphibian Survival Alliance (ASA) the world’s largest partnership for amphibian conservation. Nicknamed Salamander Man, Matt has developed his passion since he first observed these amphibians as a child and was instantly fascinated and enthralled with them.

Over the years he has observed hundreds of salamanders in their natural habitats, some in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, a region proclaimed by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute as home to more species than anywhere else in the world.

Matt will highlight the increasing threats that salamanders face here and worldwide and how we can help their recovery.
