Greg Bulté, an instructor in the Department of Biology at Carleton University, is studying the behaviour and conservation of turtles. He is putting together a project blending citizen science, research, and education centred on urban turtles, and it includes a nest protection program. Our observations will provide valuable background information.

How and where to share your observations?

If you see a turtle making a nest (any species) or a predated turtle nest, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

If you can, please include the following information:

  • Date and approximate time of the observation
  • The species observed (if known)
  • A brief description of the exact location of the observation (if possible) or google map link
  • Ideally, a picture of the turtle or nest and of the general area
  • Any other information you think is relevant

Thank you for your help!
