Turtle Research in the Field!

A group of staff and members from Common Ground and CHR in Manchester and interns from Goodwin College went into swampy turtle habitat together. We were able to capture four Eastern Painted Turtles, before taking detailed measurement data, before releasing the animals. Participants were able to learn about native turtle habits and habitats, how to determine a turtle’s age and gender, and several other topics related to turtle conservation.
