Wildlife Monitoring (Highway 69 Reptiles)
The Eco-Kare team has been monitoring the new reptile tunnels from MacTier northerly to Estaire since 2015 on Highway 69. The most data has been obtained at the three larger reptile tunnels (2.8 m high x 3.2 m wide) near Sheppard Lake where 20 Snapping turtle and Painted Turtles have crossed through the structures in two years of monitoring. At one of the monitored 1.2 m round concrete tunnel a Massasauga rattlesnake was observed crossing in July 2016.
