"In West Virginia we know the populations have declined at least 40 percent over the past 30 years," Joe Greathouse, biologist with The Wilds, said. "It's our largest salamander this side of the world and we're losing it so we need to figure out why and we're trying to figure out techniques for increasing their populations but also returning them to the streams and rivers where they used to be where they're not there anymore."
One by one, teams walk up and down streams across the state, lifting rocks and putting nets on each side to catch a hellbender.
"After we catch the hellbender we'll take environmental measurements associated with the rock," Greathouse said.

Joe Greathouse, curator of animals at Oglebay's Good Zoo in Wheeling, W.Va., has been studying and conducting a census of hellbenders in West Virginia since 2005. He has learned that they don't wander far from home and seem unable to cross stretches of silty stream bottoms. Perhaps with no rocks to hide under, they are simply easy prey for predators. Greathouse values input from anglers. "Since word of this study got out, I've received many calls from fishermen," he said.
