From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ellicott Slough National Wildlife Refuge is located in Santa Cruz County, California within the Monterey Bay area. The refuge, established in 1975 to protect the endangered Santa Cruz long-toed salamander, supports two of the eight known breeding populations of the salamander.

The threatened California red legged frog and the California tiger salamander, a candidate for listing under the Endangered Species Act, have been observed on the refuge. Current management efforts focus on enhancing both wetland and upland habitat for the Santa Cruz long-toed salamander.
