Experimental Tests for an Effective Barrier Design to Exclude Diamondback Terrapins (Malaclemys terrapin) from Roads

The objective of this project is to construct transportable fencing pieces made of different materials that can be adjusted to test different dimensions and design features. The project team anticipates that testing will occur primarily or entirely using wild-caught animals that are tested at the capture location and released immediately following the trial.
