150 orphaned turtles get chance at life thanks to Cornell wildlife team

first_img “If it’s moving nicely just stop, just let it continue to go,” VanDeMark said. And if anyone is compelled to physically move a turtle, she said, “You want to reach around to the back part of their shell — Never grabbing the tail, just supporting the tail. “When kept over the winter, the advantage is that they grow quickly and will be much bigger by spring, thus having a better head start when finally released in June,” said VanDeMark. Alice VanDeMark, a technician at the hospital, said they treat injured wildlife from anywhere, but most people don’t know the hospital exists as a resource. Sara Childs-Sanford, chief of service at the wildlife hospital said in a news release that turtle populations are experiencing declines worldwide, including in New York. “Egg incubation at the hospital and release of the hatchlings assist turtle conservation efforts by supporting population numbers,” she said. Tagged: cornell university, Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Hospital, snapping turtles, turtles Between May and July, the hospital was able to rescue 150 eggs, according to the university. Of which, 70 hatched at the hospital and the rest hatched in the care of certified wildlife rehabilitators, according to a news release. The eggs were all from snapping turtles, one of the most common New York State species, and all from within the region. “On a very basic level, it could be applied to any animal we’re talking about preserving biodiversity and a variety of species in any ecosystem is really important to keep that system healthy and in a way, they serve as sentinels for our environment’s health,” she said.  Dr. Sara Sokolnik, an intern at the hospital, stressed the importance of their work in general, not just with the turtles. Anna Lamb center_img ITHACA, N.Y. –– Cornell University’s Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Hospital rescued more than 150 eggs this summer from pregnant turtles who were struck by cars in New York. Because the turtles were too injured to lay their eggs, Cornell wildlife experts stepped in to help them hatch. Snapping turtle eggs in vermiculite (Photo by Anna Lamb/Ithaca Voice) In the wild, turtle eggs are buried in the sand to incubate. At the hospital, medical professionals mimic that environment by using a special insulation called vermiculite. Vermiculite is commonly used in gardening as a way to keep soil wet. The insulation is kept warm and damp for approximately 90 days. Drivers should keep an eye out for turtles crossing the road.

Swanson Wildlife Health Center at 607-253-3060. Most of the little turtles were released by the end of September, but some are staying in the care of the hospital to be looked after by veterinary students and other volunteers. Full-sized snapping turtles can grow to be 35 pounds and 17 inches long. “They can be from all over the state mostly they’re from a one to two-hour radius of here,” she said.  Anna Lamb is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice.Questions?

A review of scientific research trends within ASPA No. 126 Byers Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, Antarctica

first_imgByers Peninsula, Livingston Island, was one of the first sites in Antarctica designated for environmental conservation and scientific protection. Research on Byers Peninsula has been predominantly international, with 88 indexed publications (93% of them published during last 20 years) from 209 authors affiliated to 110 institutions from 22 nations, all of which are signatories to the Antarctic Treaty. Palaeontological research represented 20% of the published articles. The variety of freshwater bodies within the area has made Byers Peninsula a reference site for limnological studies (24% of papers). The site also contains numerous outcrops and periglacial features relevant to geology, stratigraphy and geomorphology (29%). Terrestrial biodiversity is extraordinarily high for lichens, bryophytes and invertebrates (15% of articles). Only 5% of the publications concern research on human activities, including both archaeology and impact monitoring. Glaciology, meteorology and climatology studies represent only 7% of papers. This work highlights the international and multidisciplinary nature of science conducted on Byers Peninsula in order to promote international cooperation and to provide information relevant for environmental management and conservation.last_img read more
