Chris Leone from Garden State Tortoise and theTurtleRoom discusses an exciting new in-situ project on which we are diligently working. Terrapins choose to live in areas that are very desirable for humans as living and vacationing spots, which makes roadways a very dangerous place at the peak of human travel and turtle egg laying seasons. We are doing everything we can to help these turtles to successfully lay their eggs AND return back to their brackish marshes safely.
Kevin is the Video Production Coordinator for theTurtleRoom. He is responsible for creating and producing (with the help of other team members) the educational content that you see on theTurtleRoom's YouTube channel and also provides support to the Senior Director. Kevin was introduced to turtles at a very young age from his older brother who kept them as pets. Growing up there were always turtles in and out of the house. Having spent twenty years filming and editing skateboarding, he now brings his passion for film to chelonians. Kevin primarily works with Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin ssp.) and North American Box Turtles (Terrepene sp.). Kevin's passions outside of turtles are his family, skateboarding, biking, kayaking, hiking and film. Kevin lives in the Northeast with his wife, two daughters, three dogs, and their bale of turtles.
