Lafarge helps reconstruct turtle nesting beach

By |  November 30, 2015

Lafarge Canada, along with Coastal Painted Turtle Project (CPTP) team members, reconstructed the turtle nesting beach at Burnaby Lake Park in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

Together, the groups hope to sustain the population of western painted turtles, which are listed as endangered federally and red-listed provincially. They are also the only remaining native freshwater turtles in British Columbia.

“Lafarge has been supporting the CPTP for a number of years, helping with projects on the Sunshine Coast and South Coast of [British Columbia],” says Deanna MacTavish, CPTP leader. “We are very grateful that Lafarge donates nesting beach sand, transports it and provides volunteers to help place it at breeding sites.”
