While visiting Kejimkujik on a day trip, we went for a canoe trip up the Mersey River.
We saw three different turtle species: the painted, a snapper and a Blanding’s turtle.
The Blanding’s Turtle is listed as endangered – with less than 250 adults in the province of Nova Scotia. We were pretty excited to see this guy – and to get some video of him checking out the GoPro.
To get this shot, we floated over to the shore and had the GoPro attached to my 48″ selfie stick (monopod).
Here is the video we shot of the curious Kejimkujik’s Blanding’s Turtle:
