Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

Long Island Diamondback Terrapin Monitoring Workshop

By Lauren Scheer

The Peconic Estuary PartnershipSeatuck Environmental Association, and Dr. Russell Burke of the Jamaica Bay Terrapin Project of Hofstra University hosted a virtual terrapin monitoring workshop where attendees learned about the importance of monitoring and how to identify terrapins and evidence of their activity. The workshop concluded with the unveiling of Seatuck’s Diamondback Terrapin Watch, which is an online survey that Long Island citizen scientists and environmental partners can utilize to record their sightings. This online survey will collect substantial data that all environmental groups can benefit from. Attendees asked questions and provided great feedback.
