I am a master's student of Dr. Jacqueline Litzgus and Dr. David Lesbarreres. My project is looking at the effectiveness of the mitigation measures along the Highway 69/400 corridor, in Ontario, to reduce the negative effects roads have on reptiles. Many reptile species living along the Georgian Bay Coastline, including snakes and turtles, are at-risk. My goal is to better our understanding of how effective these conservation measures are, and whether they should be implemented more extensively, or if they need to be altered to better protect these rare species.
