Speculator

Wildlife rehabilitator Debbie Philp will present “Adirondack Turtles” on Wednesday July 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Pleasant Library.
Location and Map

The program will offer a glimpse into the lives of freshwater turtles and their unique history and anatomy. Philp will bring “ambassador turtles” from the Adirondacks and beyond. She’ll talk about why turtles are disappearing and how to ensure turtles are around for generations to come.

Philp is a N.Y.S. licensed wildlife rehabilitator and the founder of Dancing Turtle Rescue, a small nonprofit dedicated to saving native freshwater turtles and their wetland habitats. Philp is a certified master herpetologist and brings a strong background in natural history to her public education programs.

She shares her home with rescued pets including 15 turtles, a lizard, a snake, and two frogs, in addition to her licensed educational ambassadors and any injured native turtles in care. Philp is a member of North Country Wild Care, a network of wildlife rehabilitators in northeastern New York, and is currently serving as president.
