The Coastal Plains Institute has teamed with governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, volunteers, and local children to reintroduce the striped newt to the Munson Sandhills region of the Apalachicola National Forest. After an extended drought, striped newts disappeared from the forest. During a recent exploration of the forest, a group of citizen scientists discovered the newts are making a comeback.
