Happy World Turtle Day, you guys! Turtles are one of our world’s oldest residents & today is all about them. Ollie, our educational Eastern box turtle, wanted to pass along a few easy ways you can help turtles and tortoises:

  • If you see a turtle trying to cross the road, pick it up & place it on the other side of the road in the same direction that it was heading.
  • Never take home a wild turtle as a pet.  We frequently have domestic turtles at our shelter & they can always use good homes!
  • Never release a pet turtle into the wild.
  • Help keep natural habitats clean. Pick up any trash you find near a turtle or tortoise habitat, even if it was left there by others.
