Event Details

The Big Turtle Year: Celebrating Wild Turtles Across the United States

 George L. Heinrich (Heinrich Ecological Services; Florida Turtle Conservation Trust)

Turtles play significant ecological roles, are visible elements in many habitats, and are the most endangered wildlife taxa in the world.  While species from areas such as Asia, South America, and Madagascar often receive the majority of conservation attention, the plight of the 59 species which occur in the United States quietly goes unnoticed.  During 2017, Florida Turtle Conservation Trust researchers are traveling throughout the country accompanied by other biologists and conservationists in an effort to see as many species as possible during a single year, while increasing awareness regarding their rich diversity, natural history, and conservation needs.  Please join George L. Heinrich (Heinrich Ecological Services) for an engaging presentation on this yearlong adventure and conservation education project.  For more information, please visit www.thebigturtleyear.org.

This program is recommended for all ages.
