Stewardship (Kejimkujik National Park, October 2005) - Road mortality is a serous threat to Blanding’s turtle hatchlings, juveniles, and adults, especially those females (and their young) who choose to lay their eggs near or along roads. This photo (above) shows a Blanding’s turtle hatchling recently killed by a vehicle in Kejimkujik National Park. We are doing our best to work with governments to install warning signs where turtles are at greatest risk of road mortality.
