Turtle Relocation - Status Update Week 2 (Sept. 24 - 28)

Despite our best efforts, no turtles were found in the south pond during the second week of relocation. The weather was not as pleasant as the first week, so perhaps the turtles were seeking refuge in the muck. However, we did find a bunch of fish and a couple crayfish in our nets.

In addition to searching for turtles in the south pond, a team was sent to draw down the water level in the north pond. We were hoping that a lower water level might encourage turtles to move around more, enabling us to catch them with scoop nets, but this method proved to be unsuccessful.
