Donnell Gasbarinni, Adopt-a-Pond Coordinator at the Toronto Zoo.  Her topic: Murder Mystery at Misery Bay.  Ontario Parks Ecologists were shocked to stumble upon so many threatened Blanding's turtles at Misery Bay Provincial Park when visiting to conduct plant inventories.  The situation turned grim when they returned a year later and found over 50 Blanding's carcasses.  Donnell will guide us through the unfolding of this murder mystery, which included testing for disease, predator detection and a look into the quality of overwintering sites in the area.
