Of all the fascinating creatures who call the state of Texas home, turtles have got to be near the top of the list. Texas turtles are a diverse and abundant group; there are 36 species in the state and four of them are endemic to Central Texas. Viviana Ricardez, who is vice president of the nonprofit conservation and advocacy group Texas Turtles, will be heading up the next installment of the Wild Neighbors Speaker Series with a talk about the amazing diversity of our state’s turtles. Ricardez has studied the ecology and natural history of Texas turtles for years. If there’s anything she doesn’t know about turtles, it’s probably not worth knowing. Friday, May 20, noon to 1 p.m. Register for the webinar here.
