WILD TURKEYS IN MAINE

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Very few species-recovery attempts in Maine can boast the overwhelming success story behind the reintroduction of the wild turkey. The species had been completely extirpated from the state by the early 1800s.  A small breeding population was finally re-established in York County in the 1970s, after several earlier attempts had failed.  Today, wild turkeys can be found in abundance throughout Maine. Kelsey Sullivan, the turkey wildlife specialist at Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, will speak on wild turkey population ecology and management.  He will present the results of a three-year study, in collaboration with the University of Maine, that used radio telemetry to track turkey movements and evaluate their nesting success.
