OSSGA members work to save turtles October 15, 2014
GRAVENHURST – Seventeen snapping turtle hatchlings will be given a second chance at life thanks to the efforts of the Town of Gravenhurst, C.C. Tatham and Associates Limited, Fowler Construction and Species at Risk consultant Michalski Nielsen Associates Limited. When the town was looking at road improvements, the effect on turtle nesting activities was incorporated into the project with a simple mitigation plan, onsite training and education that prepared the team when the nest was encountered. Since June, the turtles have been in the care of Scales Nature Park near Orillia and on the Friday of the Thanksgiving Weekend, the hatched turtles were released back into the wild. Snapping turtles have recently been added to the Species at Risk in Ontario list as Special Concern.
