Last summer I wrote a blog about the absence of turtles. I still do not see as many as in years ago, but I have seen more this year. In particular, outside my window where I sit at my computer. There is an almost daily stream of female Elegant Sliders Trachemys scripta looking for a good place to lay their eggs.
I have taken at least a dozen of them out of the main area of the RV park and put them down towards the end of the populated area where they can lay their eggs in a place much more conducive to survival of the offspring.
It does make me feel a bit better about the numbers, even though they are still low.
