  • 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.
