The time to protect Blanding’s Turtle habitat is now
Blanding’s Turtle is a threatened species in Indiana, Illinois, Ontario, Quebec, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York, Ohio and Michigan. The need to protect a critical habitat – that is a habitat used for reproduction, feeding and hibernation – is a key step to save this endangered species. GPS trackers have been used to better understand the species’ movements and to locate a site with high habitat suitability for future conservation plans.
