Did you know?
SLGO is the first integrated ocean observing system in Canada.
Turtle observation is simple, no specific material is required and it is a fascinating activity! Observers from all ages can participate.
We remind you that you should not touch nor move a wild turtle. Furthermore, keeping one in captivity is illegal in Quebec.
Should you have any questions or difficulties, do not hesitate to contact us.
Note the following:
Take a picture if you can!
At times, Éco-Nature protects turtle nests against predators in order to help survival of the young. Do not hesitate to mention any discovery of a dead or an injured turtle, your input is very valuable.
Your turtle observations are shared and displayed on the Biodiversity interactive map. However, since some species are endangered in Quebec, certain sensitive information, such as spawning observations, will not be available online. The data will then only be used for conservation purposes. Thanks to your observations, Éco-Nature can protect turtles and their habitats, reduce the risks and monitor turtle populations in the the Rivière des Mille Îles.
To help save turtles, we invite you to share all your observations! Your data is essential.
Thank you for participating!
