I would like to know the population of the spotted turtle in the world.
It is extremely difficult to determine exactly how many exist in the world, but the spotted turtle population was estimated to be around 2,000 in Canada in 2004. 104 populations have been discovered in southern Ontario and Quebec. In the U.S., spotted turtle populations have been found along the Atlantic Coastal Plain (from Maine to central Florida) in addition to around the south shores of the Great Lakes through the northeastern part of Illinois.
In the wild, spotted turtle populations occur only in eastern North America, but they can be found elsewhere as pets on account of pet trade. According to U.S. Humane Society reports, at least 25 million spotted turtles were exported via ports in the United States between 1989 and 1994.
I was unable to find the number of spotted turtles worldwide, but in Canada, it is estimated that there are only about 2,000 left. This is due to habitiat loss, predation, road mortality, agriculture, and toxins.
