The bog turtle is an endangered species in Connecticut. It’s only found in a few spots in western Connecticut. Thieving herpetologists pluck them up and illegally sell them for sale. Turtles get hit by cars. Their habitat is shrinking.
So is the saltmarsh sparrow. It only nests in the salt marshes along the state’s coast. Many of those marshes have been lost to, or degraded by, development. Climate change means rising seas, making it all that much harder for the sparrows to nest successfully in the marshes that still exist.
