The Potomac Valley Audubon Society welcomes Jim Siegel for his presentation, ‘Turtles of the Eastern Panhandle’.
Join PVAS for their Monthly Program where Jim Siegel, Ecology Curriculum Manager, Branch of Conservation Science at the National Conservation Training Center, US FWS, will present on ‘Turtles of the Eastern Panhandle’. Dr. Siegel will talk about their ecology and conservation and how the WV state regulations have changed, including how many WV reptiles and amphibians are completely protected now from collection and possession without a permit from the state.
Jim has worked for the FWS in conservation science training, youth programing and refuge management for 19 years, including 18 years at NCTC. He is an experienced herpetologist and ornithologist, with strong interests in the socio-cultural dimensions of wildlife conservation. Jim grew up in Roslyn, NY, a suburb 25 miles east of New York City. He holds a BS in wildlife science from Cornell University, a MS in wildlife and fisheries sciences from the University of Arizona, and a PhD in ecological anthropology from the University of Georgia. Jim was U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in national park development in Botswana from 1989-92 and worked for the Yakama Nation Fisheries Program in Central Washington from 2005-07. Jim has loved turtles since his was a little boy and has been studying the common turtles of our area since the mid-1990’s.
