Reptile Habitat Factsheets

Habitat loss and degradation are among the greatest threats to native wildlife. Long Point Basin Land Trust's nature reserves help protect vitally important habitats, but there are many things that private landowners and partner conservation groups can do to help also. These factsheets about reptile habitat creation illustrate some of the many ways people can help protect and recover species at risk populations. Click the links to open pdf files of the factsheets (print versions not available).
