"News" piece on some frog, turtle and dragonfly species in Maine, which state biologists say are quickly disappearing as they lose their habitat to fast-paced development, especially in southern counties. Philip deMaynadier, a state herpetologist, said amphibians and reptiles could be declining in part due to the loss of wetland breeding grounds, increasing road kill accidents and the zealous habits of pet collectors. To aid the conservation effort, the Wildlife Division of the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife has created a series of maps that cover Biddeford, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Buxton, York and Wells depicting riparian areas, habitats for endangered plants and animals, and land parcels that remain untouched by development.
