Slow and Steady Can Win: How Investing in Turtle Conservation Projects Can Protect these Vulnerable Species

View the webinar.

Turtles are an integral part of many terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, but the importance of these slow-moving reptiles is often overlooked. Indeed, recent studies show that turtles are among the most threatened of the major groups of vertebrates. Join this presentation led by a turtle conservation expert to hear about turtle ecology and conservation, and how site-based corporate conservation can play a valuable role in protecting these species over the long term.

You’ll learn:

  • How turtles contribute to the health of a variety of land and water environments
  • The consequences of losing turtle populations
  • Actions corporate conservation programs can take to help monitor and conserve turtle populations, with a case study of wood turtle conservation in Virginia

Who should take this webinar:

  • Site team members wanting to start managing for turtles at their facility
  • Site team members or partners looking to enhance their turtle conservation efforts
  • Anyone interested in learning more about turtles
