Artificial Turtle Nest Site Creation

In an effort to reduce road mortality and nest predation for rare turtles, Thousand Islands National Park is planning to build a small artificial nesting site near Polly Creek. The site will be approximately 5m x 5m large and 1m deep, consisting of sand and gravel surrounded by cedar logs. Turtles in the area are experiencing significant road mortality and are primarily nesting on road shoulders where near complete nest predation has been documented. The artificial nest site should reduce the number of turtles coming onto and alongside the road. Materials will be brought to the site using a small tractor and / or a motorised wheelbarrow and construction is planned for October 10, before turtle hibernation begins.
