Let's Talk Turtles!
The SPL is celebrating our environment, and Earth Day, with a great talk about freshwater turtles and how they are being impacted by environmental change in today's climate. Join us for this virtual presentation, as UNH scientist Ben Phillips introduces us to the freshwater turtle species found in New England and cover some background information about freshwater turtle biology and ecology. The presentation will also cover the landscape and environmental factors that place turtle populations at risk, the methods that have been used to monitor turtle populations, and potential steps for the future of freshwater turtle conservation.
