Red-eared sliders

A notable achievement of the ‘Restoration of Freshwater Biodiversity in Lake Dianchi’ project was the discovery and action taken against a number of invasive alien species which had not been recorded from the lake before the surveys initiated by the project. Among these are Red-eared Sliders (the turtle or terrapin commonly found in pet shops the world over) which predates on fish. (Photo: Tony Whitten)
