Turtle Conservation Program Webinar

In 2022 Friends of the Carp Hills ran a turtle conservation program in and near the Carp Hills with support from the Canadian Wildlife Federation. We had two goals:

  1. improve our understanding of turtle nest behaviour in the Carp Hills, and
  2. protect nests from predation, particularly those of Blanding’s and Snapping turtles.

Results: we learned a lot! And many eggs became hatchlings, released into ponds and wetlands near their nest sites.

Our webinar (7 November 2022) provides an overview of the conservation project, the results, and what we recommend for the future, which includes more community involvement. You can watch the webinar on our YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/UEXoyHRHUUE
