“Rediscovering the Diamondback Terrapin Along Rhode Island’s South Coast,” with Dr. Malia Schwartz, URI researcher and sea turtle specialist. Diamondback terrapins are listed as endangered in Rhode Island, where until recently they were known only from one population in Barrington. Learn more about this elusive turtle, how new discoveries along Rhode Island’s South Shore are changing the way we think about the species, and what you can do to help protect it. The Friends of the National Wildlife Refuges of Rhode Island is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing conservation, education, and outreach activities on the five National Wildlife Refuges in our state.
