Jimmy Irwin on 10-14-12. What a beautiful turtle!

Catherine and Jimmy Irwin are doing very well however, in late September Catherine’s transmitter began emitting a strange signal that was very hard to track (see video).  I was instructed by the company that manufactured the unit to remove it and send it back to them for repair.  I have since received a new transmitter and attached it to Catherine, the signal is strong and she is doing well.  Jimmy was about 300 feet west of his usual overwintering area and looked well.

Below is a video update of Catherine and her transmitter incident and Jimmy Irwin.

It is our goal at ENP to promote wildlife conservation of our misunderstood wildlife through exciting hands-on education, outreach programs, conservation based field research programs, and online with our nature documentary video series.

I am not paid nor do I pay myself to operate ENP or to conduct my wildlife conservation activities. ENP is a 100% volunteer operated program designed to educate you about these greatly misunderstood and amazing animals and hopefully, to impart to you, their beauty, uniqueness and intrinsic value to a healthy Earth and healthy humans.

If you would like to help support our mission and programs please feel free to donate using this link: http://www.earthshinenature.com/donate. Receipts available upon request. You may also donate supplies such as animal foods, medical supplies, reptile vitamins and habitat supplies. If you are interested in donating any of these items please contact us for more information on our current needs.
