UAB Researcher's Turtle Work Featured in The Birmingham News

As co-chair of ALAPARC, it's been gratifying to see plans develop for our November meeting and I'm looking forward to hearing about all the amphibian and reptile conservation and research that's going on in our state.

Today I came across an article (also here) describing Dr. Thane Wibbels' (along with Andy Coleman and Dr. Ken Marion) efforts to conserve the diamondback terrapin at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

I'm excited to note that this team will be at our meeting to discuss their research. Register now to ensure a space.
