Project Description

This project will create a stakeholder driven conservation plan for diamondback terrapins, a species of concern in the Gulf of Mexico. The conservation plan will create a central source for terrapin information in the Gulf based on the best available science and expert input. The plan will also include recommendations to prevent and reverse declines in terrapin populations and their habitats; these recommendations can be used to inform conservation and restoration efforts across the region.
