Scientific research for the conservation of the species

This survey represents a first step in a comprehensive species at risk study for the CRL Site. The results will provide empirical data regarding the presence and location of any species at risk within the boundaries of the CRL property. The survey results will provide information which will be useful in developing management strategies. The proposed survey is anticipated to provide information on: presence or absence of various species at risk turtles; habitat selection and range of turtle species; provide details on age, sex and health of individual specimens. Surveyors will adhere to the established site protocols with respect to observational, capture and release methodologies. No animals will be injured, killed or removed. Nests and eggs will be left intact and undisturbed.
