Hi everyone - thanks for the comments.
I just wanted to confirm with you that although this is a Blanding's turtle hatchling, it was not found in Guelph Ontario - I am a Species at Risk Biologist with the Toronto zoo, and we do not publicize sightings of endangered species! The last thing we need is for location information to get into the "wrong hands" - ie. poachers.
I've written Project Noah to ask about how they handle location information for endangered species, and have yet to hear back. Would anyone care to comment on what they think about sharing species location information? I'm open to discussion :)
