    This group works to conserve Diamondback Terrapins and other turtle species native to the Mid-Atlantic United States. Through private donations, the group has rescued over 5000 terrapins salvaged from waterman who harvested them from the Chesapeake Bay for food. Terrapins are used as a flagship species for education and engaging the community in hands on research. The Terrapin Institute was the first in Maryland to start a terrapin head-start program, where eggs from females hit by cars and layed in innappropriate areas are incubated and placed in schools where they grow. At the end of the school year, the terrapins are assessed, tagged, and released in an effort to restore the Bay's terrapin population.
