    • Abstract:
      The Northern Map Turtle, Graptemys geographica, is a Maryland state

      Endangered Species, found only in the lower Susquehanna River in Maryland.

      The only area where nests of this species are not heavily impacted by predators

      occurs in the town of Port Deposit. However, turtles in Port Deposit must often

      cross a gravel parking lot with constant vehicular traffic to reach the nesting

      sites, and turtles may become disoriented by human disturbance and move

      away from the river, towards the main roadway through the town, Maryland

      Route 222. In addition, the soil in which the turtles are nesting is heavily

      compacted and turtles often abandon nest sites after unsuccessful nesting

      attempts.
