Tackling Snapping Turtles at the Summit

By: Cierra Hunter

A Backbone for Conservation led by Dr. Joe Poston, a professor of biology at Catawba College, gave students real hands on experiences in the wild.

Members of the group included:
 
ISRAEL, PAYDEN, AUTUMN,  AMANDA, SETH, RACHEL, HOLLY, FABIEN, ALEX, VINCENT, BECAN, ALYSSA, CHLOE


A snapping turtle is always a cool find. They are important to the ecosystem, but they are endangered in many areas for a variety of reasons.

Here is a great video out of Canada that provides a lot of information about snapping turtles. It includes tips on how to help the snapping turtles too.
