September Turtle Tagging

These painted turtles join others tagged by FPCC staff and the turtles we adhered radio trackers to last year as part of a study that will reveal how turtles move between resources and use the river system. Excitingly, Anchor showed us a place where a tagged turtle laid eggs in the middle of our restored site on the far South Side of the river system. Anchor has expressed great enthusiasm for the project saying how it has increased FPCC capacity and was already making a difference in the first year.
