“A September 2011 survey of Pleasure House Point found at total of 113 diamondback terrapin nests along the entire property.” So CBF is protecting them.

From CBF Blog:

With construction of CBF’s Brock Environmental Center set to begin this summer, it was important to put the barrier in place prior to the nesting season in order to allow the terrapins to find another location at Pleasure House Point that will not be disturbed by future construction activities.

Please do not disturb the terrapins if you see them and leash your dog!
