Event Details

Description: Observing the underwater life of freshwater turtles in the wild is not easy. In the last few years, Greg has used various gadgets to peek under the surface of Opinicon Lake hoping to better understand the reproductive, social, and overwintering behaviours of the Northern Map Turtle. As it is often the case in science, this pursuit left him with more questions than answers, but he did get some cool images along the way! Join us as Greg shares some interesting photos and ponders why Northern Map Turtles behave the way they do.

Presenter Bio: Greg is a biology instructor at Carleton University where he teaches courses about ecology and evolution. He has studied Northern Map Turtles for almost 20 years, examining their behaviours over time. In his spare time, he frolics in the woods and ponds surrounding his cabin and whittle.
