Saving Ontario Turtles A Race Against Time
Species at Risk (SAR) Categories: Extinct Extirpated Endangered (Regulated) Endangered (Not Regulated) Threatened Special Concern Under Review
Ontario Has 8 Turtle Species: Blanding’s Turtle Map Turtle Painted Turtle Snapping Turtle Spiny Softshell Turtle Spotted Turtle Stinkpot (Common Musk) Turtle Wood Turtle
Blanding’s Turtle: Threatened Emys (Emydoidea) blandingii
Map Turtle: Special Concern Graptemys geographica
Painted Turtle: Not at Risk Chrysemys picta bellii
Snapping Turtle: Under Review Chelydra serpentina
Spiny Softshell Turtle: Threatened Apalone spinifera
Spotted Turtle: Endangered (Not Regulated) Clemmys guttata
Stinkpot (Common Musk Turtle): Threatened Sternotherus odoratus
Wood Turtle: Threatened Glyptemys (Clemmys) insculpta
Defining Species At Risk (SAR): decreased population extinction without protection extinction in natural range recovery plan required
Ontario turtles are at-risk due to: road-kills loss of habitat pollution and climate change disease
Road-kill is the #1 reason that turtles are at-risk in Ontario!
If you find a turtle on the road: slow down avoid hitting it carry it in direction it was traveling transport it to wetland
Only 1% of all Ontario turtles eggs survive to adulthood!
Threats to turtle egg survival: animal predators dogs cold weather development natural disasters
Turtles leave their home pond to: find a mate of same species find an unrelated mate shrinking wetland find a nesting site
Turtle habitat protection means: reducing pollution preventing fragmentation protect habitat (set it aside) conserve habitat (restrict human use) reducing green house gases
Help save Ontario turtles: no pet turtles join conservation clubs erect crossing signs tell family and friends
Saving Ontario turtles protects: biodiversity positive values folklore and traditions nature’s food chain
Turtles are important to Ontario’s natural and cultural heritage: biodiversity positive values folklore and traditions support food chain
All recovery actions can make a difference for Ontario Turtles. DO YOUR PART!
