  • 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.
