Species at Risk

Wood Turtle

With funding support from Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service, the Miramichi River Environmental Assessment Committee (MREAC) staff, partners, and volunteers surveyed eight reaches on six Miramichi watershed rivers. The rivers include the Bartholomew, Cains, Dungarvon, Renous, Northwest Miramichi, and the Southwest Miramichi. The Wood turtle (Glyptemys insculpta) was found at various locations on all of the six rivers with the majority of the sightings on the Dungarvon River and the Southwest Miramichi River. MREAC documented and photographed 34 specimens for 2014 along with parameters such as date, time, location (river), coordinates, size, sex, and visible damage.
