The remaining population of painted turtles in our part of the province is officially listed as endangered. These are our only native freshwater turtles, and are often mistaken for red-eared sliders and other ‘pet’ turtle species that have been released into ponds and other waterways. At our May 9th meeting, SFU graduate student Deanna MacTavish will describe the recovery plans for this species, and a number of local projects aimed at creating and improving their habitat.
