Hey all!

Hey everyone,

I just figured I'd introduce myself and explain what's happening with this and how we intend to use it...

I'm Ben Wurst. I'm the Habitat Program Manager for Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ. I have been working to document and reduce road kills of terrapins since 2009. I saw that too many were being hit by car when conducting other field work. I knew that something had to be done to help curb such road kills. With that, the Great Bay Terrapin Conservation Project was born.

I started using this app this spring and and hoped that it would make recording and sharing observations more easily for us and the agencies who are responsible for their management (NJ Fish and Wildlife). This project on here is more experimental this year. I have high hopes that it will work out in the long run and can possibly be put to use for documenting other species who are also in decline, like the eastern box turtle.

Cheers and thanks for helping our hard shelled friends.
