The South Fork Natural History Museum Receives Grant From The Hollomon Price Foundation

The South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) in Bridgehampton has received a grant from the Hollomon Price Foundation that will enable SOFO to conduct a three-year groundbreaking study tracking the movements of Eastern tiger salamanders around confirmed breeding pools within the Long Pond Greenbelt Preserve.

The study is designed to determine the area around breeding pools utilized by Eastern tiger salamanders, and to collect data that can be used to inform and guide state and local officials regarding future development projects within the Long Pond Greenbelt.

“The Eastern-tiger salamander, a NYS endangered species, is found only in New York on Long Island. We are grateful to the Hollomon Price Foundation for this opportunity to collect the groundbreaking data necessary in sustaining local habitats and populations of this species. This study will add to the Museum’s mission in continuing to educate the public and enable us to inform the scientific community and natural resource managers to better understand the sensitivity of this magnificent animal. It is our responsibility as caretakers of the planet to protect this species,” said SOFO Executive Director Frank Quevedo.
