    Protecting the map turtles

    Sometimes we forget that the Montreal area, although very urbanized, is also an archipelago of some hundred islands and islets as well as several streams and rivers. In this aquatic environment live a number of species, including the map turtle; considered to be vulnerable according to Quebec’s Act on Threatened or Vulnerable Species.
