Season's Greetings from the Long Point Biosphere Reserve Board of Directors
We would like to give you brief updates on Biosphere activity via periodic emails. In the following article, Paula Jongerden gives an update on the Causeway Project.
Carrion-Eaters Protest Causeway Construction
But the creatures of the reptilian and amphibian persuasion aren’t complaining!
Our road mortality monitoring on the Causeway this past summer found only 64 reptiles killed on the road, a 75% decrease from our base line study in 2008; and the lowest number ever recorded since the first surveys in 1979-80.
A Big Thank You to the many local stakeholder groups, Norfolk County and concerned citizens that make up the Long Point Causeway Improvement Plan Steering Committee for their on-going and continued dedication to this great community project. The Long Point Biosphere Foundation is very pleased to be part of this effort - now into its ninth year.
We are also pleased to present photos of some of the beneficiaries of the cutting-edge 'in-roads' (pun intended) being made concerning road ecology - right here in Norfolk County! Indeed, we are proud that the project has received provincial, national and international interest.
