The Bog Turtle (Glyptemys muhlenbergii) is the smallest turtle in North America, and one of the rarest. Habitat specialists, Bog Turtles live and reproduce in specific types of rare wetlands. These wetlands are in urgent need of conservation and restoration. Project Bog Turtle (PBT) is an independent, private-sector, volunteer conservation initiative dedicated to the preservation of the southern population of Bog Turtles and their habitats. PBT was launched in 1995 as a subsidiary of the North Carolina Herpetological Society and is funded by private donations and fundraisers. All donations are tax-deductible.
