River Turtle Project Off and Running!

It’s a launch!

Radio transmitters beeping, Snapping Turtles #1 and 2 are swimming somewhere off the IPFW campus as the first phase in a long-term study of turtles in Fort Wayne’s rivers. Graduate student Kevin McLane will be tracking turtles along the St. Joe River over the next couple of summers, seeing where they go, how far they travel, how they deal with natural and not so natural habitats. Stayed tuned for periodic updates!
