Northern Diamondback Terrapins are native to New Jersey and inhabit the many miles of coastal salt marshes and estuaries along the Atlantic Coast and Delaware Bay. Habitat loss, illegal trapping, mortality from being drowned in crab traps, and road mortality all pose major threats to their long term survival. Come join in and learn even more about the amazing Diamond Terrapin and their survival here in the New Jersey salt marshes.
