Hatchling’s Journey


In 1953 Nova Scotia zoologist Sherman Bleakney made a surprising discovery. He found a female Blanding’s turtle living near Kejimkujik Lake. Until then, scientists did not know that the freshwater Blanding’s turtles lived in Nova Scotia. In 1990, this small population of Blanding’s turtles in southwestern Nova Scotia became a protected species and three years later was designated a threatened species.

Set in Nova Scotia’s Kejimkujik National Park, this remarkable story is about a young Mi’kmaw girl and her family’s encounter with a Blanding’s turtle hatchling. Richly illustrated by the award-winning artist Jeffery C. Domm, The Hatchling’s Journey provides us with first-hand experience observing the turtle hatchlings emerging from their nests and their fascinating journey into the Kejimkujik woods for winter. Nominated for a 2005 Hackmatack Award.
