About This Project

Turtles are the most threatened group of vertebrate on the planet. Eastern box turtles were once common, but are particularly threatened by a new disease called ranavirus. To learn how to fight this disease, we must find and test wild turtles. Humans are terrible at finding box turtles because they are so good at hiding. Funding for this project will go towards hiring a team of dogs specially trained to find box turtles by smell (see video)!
