Chris Bogard, a NH licensed wildlife rehabilitator, will speak about her work with injured turtles. Chris will bring a slide show and several of her patients with her as she explains the methods she uses that can sometimes heal even severe injuries and allow release of turtles back into their natural habitat. Chris has devoted countless hours to providing turtles with life-saving medical care. Automobile collisions account for a majority of the injuries, although dogs and other animals may also inflict grave wounds.
This program is for families with children of all ages and no registration is necessary.
