Vanishing Reptiles: The decline and recovery of Ontario's turtles and snakes

Saturday, August 1

10:00am-11:00am

Presented by Scott Gillingwater - Species at Risk Biologist
Endangered species are more than just Pandas and Whales, they are not limited to the Oceans or far off continents, and they may not be large or covered in soft fur or pretty feathers.  Globally, reptiles have experienced some of the most rapid declines of any group of animals, and even here in Ontario, most are at some degree of risk with many now endangered.  Ontario has over two dozen species of reptiles, though most of these turtles, snakes and our only lizard are unable to adapt quickly enough to the increasing human-influenced changes to their world. Now it is people that offer the last hope for saving many of these creatures. Come explore the often overlooked gems of our fields, forests and wetlands, understand their threats and learn what is being done to save them and what you can do to help.
