Dear Terrapin Conservation Supporters,
More good news! New Jersey’s Senate Environment and Energy Committee and Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources committees recently met to consider Bill S-1625 and A-2949 to classify diamondback terrapins a as non-game indigenous species. The bill passed both committees and will move forward to a full vote. The Wetlands Institute is supportive of this bill that will provide terrapins greater protection and end the harvest in New Jersey.
If you would like to voice support for the bill, you can find contact information for your state representatives at the link below.
