WESTERN POND TURTLE RECOVERY
Western pond turtle populations have declined due to commercial exploitation for food, loss of habitat and introduced predators, such as bullfrogs and large-mouth bass. By the mid-1990s, Western pond turtles were found in just two small populations totaling about 150 turtles. Led by WDFW, the Western Pond Turtle Working Group, continues to work to overcome threats to species survival. Learn more >>
