Guidance For Conserving Oregon’s Native Turtles Including Best Managenent Practices

This document includes recommended Best Management Practices (BMPs) for protecting and conserving Oregon’s two native turtle species, the western painted turtle and the western pond turtle. While there are opportunities for all Oregonians to become more knowledgeable about and participate in turtle conservation efforts, this document is intended primarily for use by natural resource and land managers, land use planners, and project managers. The document has been peer-reviewed and the BMPs are supported by scientifically sound information. The BMPs are intended to be practical and cost-effective so that they can be readily used. Adherence to these BMPs does not necessarily constitute compliance with all applicable federal, state, or local laws.
Part of the "OREGON CONSERVATION STRATEGY" the intent of this document is to facilitate better protection and conservation of oregon’s native turtles and their habitats.
