Endangered Species Find A Peaceful Home On Land Used To Train For War

Fort Leonard Wood is home to more than 6,000 soldiers and at least three endangered species.

Those animals and two more that are threatened are protected and cared for despite living among shelling and other military training.

And scientists flock to the installation, saying itís a boon to their research and gives them an opportunity to help these animals.

Fort Leonard Wood is the confirmed home of three endangered species: the spectaclecase mussel, the gray bat and the Indiana Bat. Also on base are two threatened species: the eastern hellbender salamander and the northern long-eared bat.
