Get Your Turtles Here!

One of the researchers at Rondeau Provincial Park is doing work on endangered and threatened turtle species and what intervention could be done to help them.

He transplanted about 600 turtle eggs of various species and kept them in a temperature controlled area.

last night a large portion of he eggs hatched including map, painted, snapper, blandings and soft shells.

The photos don't do the sight justice but the light was bad. Hopefully I can get some good photos when they are released into the wilds.
