Diamondback terrapins, America’s only brackish water turtle, faced a severe population decline in the late 1800s. At the time, turtle soup was a popular dish, and terrapins were nearly hunted to extinction. Join Sea Center Texas to learn how careful conservation planning saved this species from demise. We’ll learn all about the terrapin’s biology, life cycle, and habitat, as well as the current threats to the population. You’ll even get to meet Sea Center’s resident terrapin, Truman!
