Pacific Giant Salamanders: Dicamptodontidae - Conservation Status

logging risk streams threatened

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists one species of Pacific giant salamanders as Low Risk/Near Threatened, or at risk of becoming threatened with extinction in the future. These salamanders depend on forests and clear, unpolluted streams. This habitat is being harmed by excessive logging, road building and other construction, and the spreading of cities. Salamanders are most abundant in old-growth forests, but they survive after logging as long as the streams remain relatively free of silt.
