Abstract

For such a long-lived animal, turtles in the wild face many challenges — so many that most species are considered endangered. Fred Janzen has been studying turtles for more than 20 years and conservation has increasingly become the focus of his work. The professor of ecology, evolution and organismal biology created a “Turtle Camp” in 1995, the year after he joined Iowa State, that gives students the chance to “get out and do science.”
