SPEAKER & TOPIC: Tonight's speaker is Stephanie Cappiello from the Chicago Herpetological Society.  Stephanie 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!
