Please do not turn the reservoirs of the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area into a parking lot.

The reservoirs are now home to a unique population of tiger salamanders that have underwent a rare adaptation. These salamanders now remain in an aquatic state rather than changing into a terrestrial salamander. This population is of a great scientific interest. Research is being performed to gain an understanding of this rare population’s adaptations. The parking lot location should change so this rare salamander population will not be killed. There are many more locations available that would not require the destruction of so much life and alternatives should be looked at.
