Join citizen scientists from around Long Island in monitoring the occurrences of Diamondback Terrapins in our region. The information will help ascertain important nesting and foraging sites and identify hazardous road crossings. It will also help guide efforts to safeguard this iconic Long Island species.

Volunteer surveyors are simply asked to record and submit their sightings through the Terrapin Watch app, which provides an easy-to-use electronic submission form.

Terrapin Watch is organized through the Long Island Diamondback Terrapin Working Group, a coalition of governmental entities, nonprofit organizations and academic institutions working to advance Terrapin conservation.
