“Building on What We've Learned: What's New
with New York Terrapin Research and Conservation”

These are exciting times for New York terrapin research—we are learning more about Jamaica Bay's terrapins, we are developing new techniques, we are surveying the rest of Long Island and the Hudson, and we are collaborating with other local researchers. Come hear some updates and get involved!
