Blanding's Turtle Hatchlings Released

On 7 August, the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) released twelve Blanding’s turtles into a Carp Hills pond.

Friends of the Carp Hills worked with CWF to conduct a turtle nest monitoring program in June to support turtle population sustainability. CWF collected twelve eggs from a roadside Blanding’s turtle nest flagged on the evening of 8 June by Rachel, one of our turtle monitors. CWF incubated the eggs, which started to hatch on 5 August. We released the hatchlings in a pond near the location where the eggs were laid.
