Endangered Dragonfly Returns

Story Highlights
  • The Conservancy celebrates when endangered species find a home on conserved lands.
"Build it and they will come"

 The Nature Conservancy's natural areas are magnets for wildlife, says Jon Binhammer, Vermont's Director of Land Protection.
"We have had several examples of wildlife showing up on our lands after we have conserved them. A recent memorable example is the rare Cerulean warbler at Snake Mountain South."

Another in a series of “if you build it, they will come” events has occurred in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, Binhammer says.

New Hampshire naturalist Rick Van de Poll has confirmed the third location in Vermont for the Subarctic Darner, a dragonfly, at the Conservancy’s Tuttle Pond tract at West Mountain Wildlife Management Area.

The Subarctic Darner is an endangered species in Vermont, and was found along the bog mat on the east side of the pond, Binhammer says. Tuttle Pond, quiet and remote, is one of the only ponds without camps at the West Mountain Wildlife Management Area.
