The Blanding’s turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) is a medium-sized, semi-aquatic freshwater turtle that is a threatened species in Massachusetts. The New England population is disjunct from the main portion of their range. They require a variety of wetland habitats, make frequent seasonal overland movements, and therefore suffer mortality not only from direct wetland habitat loss, but from landscape fragmentation as well.
