Species at Risk

Wood Turtle

In partnership with Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service and the New Brunswick Department of Energy and Resource Development, the Miramichi River Environmental Assessment Committee (MREAC) staff, partners, and volunteers have assessed Wood turtle presence/absence and their habitat on the major Miramichi River tributaries.  When encountered a specimen is photographed and its location recorded; data is then shared with these jurisdictional agencies.  MREAC annually acquires the necessary research permit from New Brunswick and observes the strict protocol to engage with Wood turtle specimens as little as necessary. We acknowledge support from Environment Canada’s Habitat Stewardship Program and the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund.
