Join us at the Coastal Discovery Museum as we learn from expert biologist Erin Levesque about the unique Diamond Back Terrapin, the all-time resident turtle of the Lowcountry Salt Marsh. This presentation will focus on the biology of these unique turtles as well as past and present challenges facing diamondback terrapin populations. A description of terrapin culture will illustrate our efforts to responsibly utilize la-raised animals to supplement depleted populations while learning more about the biology of wild terrapins.
