The uncommon turtles of Vermont

Beth Carroll is a spring 2020 graduate of the Rubenstein School, where they double-majored in Natural Resources and Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. Beth illustrated a poster of turtles for their project.

Beth writes, “I drew the 5 uncommon, threatened, or endangered turtle species of Vermont: the Stinkpot, the northern map, the wood, the spotted, and spiny softshell turtles. The populations of these turtles have mostly been impacted by human encroachment, habitat degradation, and mistreatment, especially within the pet trade.”
