Bird on a branch

Speaker(s): Russell Burke

Topic: Meet the Terrapins of NYC

Details: The Jamaica Bay Terrapin Research Team has been studying terrapins in the midst of urbanized New York City since 1998, and has uncovered many surprising facts about our estuarine neighbors. There are plenty of reasons to be concerned about their future, but also there is reason to be confident that conservation works.

Dr. Burke is a Professor of Biology at Hofstra University specializing in research on local vertebrates including snakes, lizards, turtles, raccoons, and coyotes. He is ever-fascinated by how they adapt to our urbanized environments.
