Carp Hills Turtle Conservation Webinar
November 7 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This summer Friends of the Carp Hills ran a turtle nest monitoring program in and near the Carp Hills with support from the Canadian Wildlife Federation. We had two goals:
- improve our understanding of turtle nest behaviour in the Carp Hills, and
- 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 will provide an overview of the monitoring project, the results, and what we recommend for the future, which includes more community involvement. Registration on Zoom is required in order to receive the webinar link.
