Students work to make salamander state amphibian
For Team Manager Stephanie Maze-Hsu, what she loves is to see her students finding their voice through work on the legislation.
It has been a process. First members of the Andover Animal Advocates Destination Imagination team identified all of the endangered species in Andover. Then they spread the word about the 29 species.
Now, they’re trying to protect one of those animals, working with state Rep. Tram Nguyen, D-Andover, on a law to make the blue-spotted salamander Massachusetts’ state amphibian.
