With Wildlife Biologist Josh Megyesy of New Hampshire Fish and Game’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program
Location: Forest Society Education Center at Creek Farm, 400 little Harbor Road, Portsmouth, NH
Turtles are sentient beings with ancient wisdom within them. We are just beginning to learn the many fascinating things that these turtles have to share. With the location of a suitable nesting being crucial for successful nesting, hatching and survival, it has never been a more important time to learn more about the many ways we can help these ancient neighbors survive and thrive in our ever changing world. Come learn fascinating facts about New Hampshire turtles from Wildlife Biologist Josh Megyesy from New Hampshire Fish and Game's Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program and their important role in our ecosystem, where they are found in New Hampshire, and what studies are being done to learn more about them! Josh will discuss turtle ecology, habitats, threats, and even conservation actions for private landowners. He will highlight a few species that he has conducted long-term monitoring on and what is being done to conserve NH’s threatened and endangered turtle populations. Josh will also highlight NHF&G’s Reptile and Amphibian Reporting Program and how you can report YOUR sightings as well as the importance of reporting.
