TURTLE SIGN INVENTORY AND EVALUATION PROJECT
Eco-Kare in cooperation with the Ontario Road Ecology Group and other partners is creating an inventory of the approximately 700 turtle crossing signs in Ontario to determine where and how they are placed in the landscape. The project is funded by the 2011 Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) Highway Infrastructure Innovation Funding Program (HIIFP).
We need citizen scientists, volunteers, and field technicians to help us collect the information. If you encounter a turtle crossing sign, please use the form below to obtain location data as well as other information related to the sign.
Ideally, we would like GPSed location data at the sign location in addition to a described location.
If your agency has collected data on signs in electronic format (eg Word or Excel), please e-mail the information to .
If you prefer, you can submit information on a hardcopy datasheet (52K pdf) for use in the field.
Thank you for contributing to this project.
