April DeJong, Research Coordinator at the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (OTCC) will cover the scope of their field work program, including radio telemetry, notching, and headstarting juvenile Blanding’s turtles! Additionally, April will spend time exploring scientific papers the OTCC has published, driven by data collected from their field studies.

She began volunteering with the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre in 2018, and was later hired as a field technician in 2019.

The Toronto Field Naturalists wish to acknowledge this land through which we walk. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga of the Credit River. Today it is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be on this land.
