Tonight's speaker is
Stephanie Cappiello from the Chicago

is an undergraduate at Dominican University in River Forest, IL and is pursuing a degree in
biology. Her talk will focus
on her undergraduate research project on gopher tortoises, at the Sanibel-Captiva
Conservation Foundation, for the honors program. She
is studying how burrow placement affects thermoregulation. Her presentation will
also include background information on how she
was introduced to reptiles and how she applies her love of herps at school. The presentation will end with a general
overview of turtle natural history and husbandry.
See you there!
