Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas Publication Webinar
November 25, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
After 10 years of data collection, the Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas Program is wrapping up with a final database consisting of over 480,000 records. This represents the cumulative efforts of more than 12,000 researchers, naturalists and citizen scientists from across the province.
Ontario Nature staff and partners are producing a publication outlining key trends and conservation priorities for Ontario’s reptiles and amphibians. Join Ontario Nature’s Conservation Projects Coordinator, Brittney Vezina, and former Ontario Nature staff member and current Liber Ero Fellow, Dr. James Paterson, for a live webinar discussing results from our upcoming publication.
During this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn about the history of reptile and amphibian atlases in Ontario, how citizen science efforts have shaped our current knowledge and how to advance conservation efforts. Paterson will highlight results from his in-depth analysis of atlas data, discussing the impact of roads and habitat loss on reptiles and amphibians in Ontario. With the publication set to be released in 2021, this is your chance for a sneak peek at what’s to come.
Funding for this webinar was provided by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
