Citizen Ambassadors Help Protect Turtles in Lambton Shores

<< Back to project list

The turtle monitoring program, and the great work of all the volunteers, helps Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) biologists to better understand turtles and the habitats they use. Concerned citizens organized a turtle crossing sign campaign in which 25 temporary signs were distributed throughout Port Franks to help protect turtles from being hit on the roads. Five turtle nests were protected with nest cages, and two nests were collected due to their proximity to the road. Sixty reptile sightings were reported from the Grand Bend - Port Franks area.
