Diamondback Terrapin Conservation in Georgia

February 11, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Free

Diamondback terrapins are one of the only North American turtles to spend their entire life cycle in the salt marsh. Beautifully patterned and well adapted to the extremes of living in an estuary, these turtles are ambassadors for the marsh and at risk from human activity. Learn about terrapin conservation and education during a virtual public program that counts towards the Coastal Stewards program. The program will feature Carolyn McInerney, the founder of the Diamondback Terrapin Rescue Project. This project works to protect terrapin nests laid on Skidaway Island and has released 15,000 hatchlings since it was founded. This program will will also include a virtual encounter with a diamondback terrapin, one of the UGA Aquarium’s animal ambassadors
