Help NC Herp Society protect Bog Turtle habitat

Post by amdurso » February 11th, 2015, 10:22 am

The North Carolina Herpetological Society is trying to raise $14,000 to contribute to the purchase of a bog in the NC mountains which is home to a population of Bog Turtles, as well as to several species of rare plants and other bog fauna and flora. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is contributing the remainder of the landowner's total asking price of ~$90,000. Currently, about 75% of all southeastern bog turtle sites are on private lands, so this purchase would significantly increase the security not only of this site, but of bog turtles as a species.

Please consider donating to this fundraiser, which has raised about $10,000 so far:
