Triumph of the Turkey; Through the Seasons with a Red Fox Family; Turtles of N.H. – All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. – New Hampshire's wild turkeys, once completely gone from the state, are strutting proud to the tune of 40,000 birds today; can that restoration success be sustained? Read more about it – including how you can help create turkey habitat – in the May-June 2010 issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine, which features a magnificent gobbler on its cover.
Also in this issue, follow a red fox family through the seasons through the images of wildlife photographer Charles Willey. And learn to identify New Hampshire's turtles, from the endangered Blanding's to our most common species, the painted turtle, often seen basking on logs and rocks in wetlands. Modern life presents many hazards to today's turtles, which is why nearly half of modern turtles worldwide are either threatened with extinction or gone already. Find out what's being done to help turtles in the Granite State, and how you can help.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. Regular columns profile the Eastern hognose snake, new conservation lands to enjoy, a Kid's Corner, and how volunteers are helping New Hampshire's state parks.
