Impacts of Projected Sea Level Rise on Diamondback Terrapin Nesting Habitats and Applications for Living Shorelines

By Holly Funkhouser

Hometown: Strasburg, Virginia

Department: Environmental Science and Policy

Advisor: Randolph Chambers


For my senior honors thesis I will be researching how projected sea level rise could negatively impact diamondback terrapins America's only turtle that lives in estuaries, like the Chesapeake Bay. Additionally, I will utilize my analyses to identify terrapin nesting habitats that would best be preserved through living shorelines. This research is crucial for understanding conservation efforts and would aid in ensuring the health of the diamondback terrapin population.
