WHO: Dept. of Fish & Game, Division of Fisheries and Wildlife Staff and Turtle Partners

WHAT: Headstarted Endangered Turtle Release

WHEN: Friday, May 29—Turtles brought to MassWildlife Headquarters in Westboro for weighing and marking

Monday, June 5—Turtle Release in Middleborough 10:30 AM. Department of Fish and Game Commissioner Mary Griffin and MassWildlife staff will be present to answer questions. Public is invited to assist in releasing the turtles.

BACKGROUND: Hatchling Northern Red-bellied Cooters (turtles) were removed from the wild last fall and placed with partnering educational and scientific facilities from across the state to accelerate growth and reduce mortality during a turtle’s first year of life. Raised in warm aquarium environments with unlimited food, these turtles grow quickly and are no longer as vulnerable to predation when released the following year. The process is called “Headstarting”. Cooperating partners will be bringing headstarted turtles to MassWildlife’s Field Headquarters in Westborough for final weighing, measuring and shell marking. Release will take place at Great Quittacas and Pocksha Ponds in Middleborough on Monday, June 1 at 10:30 AM.

Originally, known as the Plymouth Red-belly turtle, Northern Red-bellied Cooters are classified as endangered species at both the state and federal level. These turtles are Massachusett’s second largest freshwater turtle, behind the snapper, measuring up to 12 inches in shell length and reaching weights of up to 10 pounds. They are only found in the Plymouth County region of southeastern Massachusetts, completely isolated from other populations found in the mid-Atlantic states. They are named for their coral-red plastron (underbelly of shell).

Only a few hundred adult red-bellied cooters were believed to exist in the Commonwealth in 1984. Low survival rates of eggs and hatchlings are a factor limiting the species’ population. Turtle nests are plundered by scavenging raccoons and skunks, while quarter-sized hatchlings emerging in late summer face a gauntlet of predators such as fish, frogs and wading birds, not to mention ever-encroaching residential development complete with kids, pets and cars, all of which spell death for the tiny reptiles.

Habitat management efforts have been initiated with area landowners on lakes and ponds where turtle nests have been located and protected. Over 2,000 turtles have been released through the Headstart program since it’s inception since the mid-1980’s. At least three headstarted turtles are known to have nested in this time period.

For more information about northern redbellied cooters, see the following fact sheet: http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/nhesp/species_info/nhfacts/pseudemys_rubriventris.pdf


Long Point Road, Middleborough: From Rte 495 take Exit 4 for Rte 105 south. Follow 105 through Lakeville center and past Assawompsett Pond on left and stay straight when Rte 18 turns to the right. Take left on Long Point Road and follow across causeway between Pocksha and Great Quittacas ponds to meeting/release site.

SPACE STATION FLARES:  Lately, a growing number of observers are reporting intense "flares" coming from the International Space Station (ISS).  During some nighttime flybys, the luminosity of the space station surges 10-fold or more. Some people have witnessed flares of magnitude -8 or twenty-five times brighter than Venus.  A movie featured on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com shows what is happening: sunlight glints from the station's recently expanded solar arrays in a shadow-casting flash. Currently, the flares are unpredictable.  You watch a flyby not knowing if one will happen or how bright it might be.  That's what makes the hunt for "ISS flares" so much fun.

Sky watchers in North America should be alert for flares this week.  The ISS is making a series of evening passes over many US and Canadian towns and cities.  Flyby times are available from the Simple Satellite Tracker: http://spaceweather.com/flybys

Marlborough Hospital to Hold 11th Annual Safe Summer Fun Day on June 13



Marlborough, MA, (May 21, 2009) – Marlborough Hospital’s 11th annual Safe Summer Fun Day is Saturday, June 13, from 10 am to 2 pm on the front lawn of Marlborough Hospital at 157 Union Street, Marlborough. The free child-oriented health and safety fair will be held rain or shine.

The hospital will once again sponsor bike helmet fitting where trained Marlborough Hospital staff will properly fit and give away children’s bicycle helmets, while supplies last. For adults who wish to be fitted, a $10 donation is requested.

The event will feature many hands-on hospital exhibits such as healthy eating, “doctor dress up,” sun exposure screenings, heart health and stopping germs from spreading, to name a few. Marlborough Public Schools will have an interactive health and wellness exhibit featuring school programs that encourage healthy children’s activities, such as Safe Routes to School, a walking-to-school program, and the after-school program, Mission Nutrition. The Marlborough Fire Department will also be there teaching fire safety and the Marlborough Recycling Committee will educate residents on recycling. The day will also feature fun, family-oriented activities such as face painting, balloon animals, an obstacle course, a trackless train, a deejay, games and contests. Tours of fire trucks and ambulances are also planned. A barbecue provided by the Rotary Club of Marlborough will be available for a nominal cost.

New to this year’s event is the UMass Memorial Medical Center Trauma Service’s “Mobile Safety Streets,” and UMass Memorial Health Care’s Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. Mobile Safety Streets is a traveling exhibit designed to teach children how to recognize and prevent common safety hazards that can lead to injuries. Among the skills taught are pedestrian and bicycle safety, street smarts (for example, recognizing stranger danger and street hazards), kitchen safety, fire, burn and poisoning prevention, dealing with a gun found in the home, emergency and disaster preparedness, to name a few. Another new participant will be Child Protection Resources who will be providing a free child safety digital fingerprinting and photo identification.

11th Annual Safe Summer Fun Day

The UMass Memorial Health Care Life Flight air ambulance is scheduled to arrive between 11 am and noon. The very popular rock climbing wall, sponsored by the Cottage Children’s Center, will also be on hand so children can test their climbing ability in a safe environment.

Marlborough Hospital wishes to express appreciation to the following Safe Summer Fun Day sponsors: Marlborough Fraternal Order of Eagles; Marlborough Rotary Club; Sisters of Saint Anne and Southboro Medical Group.

For more information call 508-486-5806.
