TOPIC: Saving Turtles

The ecology and conservation of turtles and tortoises will be depicted and discussed by this month’s guest speaker, based on his recent field trips in New York, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. Turtle ecology will be compared in context to bird banding and long-term population monitoring. Radio tracking, trail cameras, and other ecological field techniques will be discussed.

Peter Warny travels extensively to conservation project sites across the U.S. and has worked for The Nature Conservancy and National Audubon Society. Peter owns conservation land in Florida as part of a cooperative biological field station, conducting surveys of reptiles, birds, insects, and plants.
