Myths & Truths: Let's Talk Sssnakes!
June 30, 2021 | 12pm CT
You likely either love them or fear them. But whether you avoid them on the trail or have one at home, snakes provide a valuable service to nature on land and even in the water.
On this episode of the Nature Connects Us webinar series we’re talking with Jeanine Lackey, Preserve Manager for the Arbuckle Plains and resident snake expert, to bust myths and dispel misconceptions about our shifting, slithering friends.
Don’t understand snake behavior? We’re talking about it. Curious about their species history and habits? We’re covering it. Join us to get up close with a few snakes that call Pontotoc Ridge Preserve home.
A Tale of Two States and A Love for Sea Turtles
August 18, 2021 | 12pm CT
Yes, they’re cute. Especially when they’re tiny and waddling from sand to sea where they begin their long life (up to 50 years) riding the currents of the ocean. But the journey down the beach can be perilous. Habitat fragmentation, climate change and ocean pollution are threatening sea turtle’s ability to thrive and maintain healthy populations. In fact, most species of turtles, Leatherback, Loggerhead, Hawksbill, Kemp’s Ridley and Green sea turtles are federally listed as threatened or endangered.
To protect these majestic creatures, The Nature Conservancy in Florida began the Sea Turtle Rescue Program in the 1980s. In this webinar you’ll meet Sarah Martin, Program Lead for the rescue program at Blowing Rocks Preserve, who knows that when it comes to sea turtles, a little bit of help can make a big difference. And that’s where Pam O’Halloran comes in. Pam is from Tulsa, Oklahoma and each year she spends several months in Florida assisting in sea turtle research, education and conservation.
From the expansive Great Plains to the pristine shores of Florida, see what one Oklahoman and The Nature Conservancy are doing to save sea turtles!
