Hellbender in the Blue

HellbenderintheBLue 1


From New York to Appalachia, the two-foot long Eastern hellbender salamander is an indicator species of our river health. The population has declined noticeably since the early 1980s. Taking place in the Blue River watershed of Southern Indiana, this film shares the story of a state-wide effort to improve the environment for our slimy friend and the water for us all.
