Turtles and tortoises have existed relatively unchanged for nearly 215 million years, yet the world's 300 species of chelonians are arguably the most endangered vertebrates on earth. Long Pasture director and herpetologist Ian Ives will focus on the turtles of Cape Cod (with living examples) such as the rare diamondback terrapin, the red-bellied cooter,and the prehistoric-looking snapping turtle. The program is suitable for ages 3 and up.
