    About This Project

    The Diamondback terrapin, a threatened species, is a key species in the salt marsh. This study will capture, mark and release terrapins to map the overall health and population surrounding Chincoteague Island in Virginia. By recording key demographic parameters among the local population this study will help determine if this Tier 2 Threatened species needs further legal protection to help regain the populations it maintained early in the 1900's.
