"Daybreak in Alabama"
Celebrating Alabama's 201st Birthday
..."Rising out of the ground like a swamp mist
And falling out of heaven like soft dew
I'm gonna put some tall tall trees in it
And the scent of pine needles
And the smell of red clay after rain..."
- Langston Hughes, Daybreak In Alabama

Today is Alabama's birthday and we are celebrating its biological diversity. Ample sunlight, diverse geology, and extensive waterways are just some of the components that allow the 22nd state to host a variety of plant and animal species. Some, like the Manitou cavesnail, Black Warrior waterdog, Cahaba Torch, Red Hills Salamander, and Alabama beach deermouse are endemic to Alabama and can be found nowhere else outside the state. Read about these fascinating plants and animals in The Wild Wonders of Alabama!
