fill out our terrapin sighting form

We need your help!

If you locate a terrapin in Leeds Point, please fill out our form to help us in our research and conservation efforts. Diamondbacks have different habits and instinctual behaviors depending on the age of the animal, the weather, tide, temperature, the season, and many other factors. The more we know, the better chance we have at helping the terrapins from hatchling to adult life. We thank you for taking the time to fill out our form and contributing to our research!


The diamondback terrapin is no longer a game species, and is now a protected non-game species. Leave wild terrapins wild. The Terrapin Nesting Project has taken the appropriate steps in obtaining all necessary state scientific collecting and holding permits for our work.  

Please report any suspicious behavior here or to  1-877-927-6337 .
