examples are some of the recent projects that Glenside has
Turtle Road Mortality Mitigation Study
Haliburton Highlands Land Trust/ OMNR
Designed and implemented 3 year study on the effectiveness of turtle road mortality mitigation;
Selected candidate sites based on historical observation data, wetland and road suitability;
Developed protocol for turtle monitoring and trained and coordinated community volunteer, intern and student monitors;
Managed and analyzed data to select control and test sites;
Refined design of barrier wall to site specific environmental conditions and coordinated installation.
Coordinated post mitigation monitoring.
Conducted statistical analysis (Poisson Generalized Linear Model) on effectiveness of mitigation design.
Applied Circuit Theory to identify Blanding's Turtle migration and road intersections for further mitigation
Turtle Road Mortality and Habitat Fragmentation Mitigation Plan
Haliburton Highlands Land Trust/ The Land Between/ OMNR
Conducted an extensive literature review and consulted with researchers, government and NGO experts in the field of wildlife underpass design and recommended a design specific to the County of Haliburton;
Analyzed existing observation data to identify candidate sites for road permeability improvement;
Developed site specific turtle road mortality mitigation for candidate sites;
Established new partnerships to facilitate the integration of road permeability improvement projects into planned road structure upgrades;
