Save the salamanders, unsung heroes of the forest

Salamanders are a major link in the food web, and measured by weight, there can be more salamander biomass than all mammals and birds combined in a forest.

Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bs or Bsal), a flesh eating fungus, is killing salamanders worldwide.
Also Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), the fungus killing off frogs worldwide, also kills many types of salamanders, so they're getting a double whammy.
