Today Lafarge partnered with the Western Painted Turtle Project team, Lequamel First Nations and Nicomen Island Improvement District to construct two nesting beaches in the Nicomen Slough.

Coastal populations of Western Painted Turtles are federally endangered and provincially red-listed. They are also the only remaining native freshwater turtle in the province. We constructed these beaches in hopes of sustaining their population indefinitely.
