A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY AT MACOUN MARSH IN OTTAWA, CANADA!
Yesterday, a small group of youth witnessed the emergence of a teeny tiny baby turtle! While we were observing a disturbed painted turtle nest one young biologist said that he saw movement- and Voi-la, a baby hatchling coming out of the ground! This is the perfect example of being at the right place at the right time! This is the first time this has ever been witnessed at the Macoun Marsh. Another miracle of nature! We then released it into the main marsh- it swam like a professional!
