It's turtle season! We are currently right in the middle of the highest activity/nesting time for turtles in Central Ontario, which is incidentally a region home to a third of Ontario's turtle population. Turtles are currently in a state of crisis due to the number of turtle roadkill as well as injured turtles that were reported in Central Ontario last year. Turtles need to live a long time because it takes 30 to 80 years of laying eggs for a turtle to replace itself with an offspring- every turtle killed on the road is a serious threat to overall population levels. I am participating in the turtle walk this year in Peterborough to help raise money and awareness for this issue. Pledges help support turtle tunnel and trauma campaigns; 50% for prevention (to plan and install turtle tunnels which allow turtles to cross under roads safely) and 50% for cure (to support turtle trauma care in Canada's only turtle hospital). Thank you in advance for your donation, the turtles appreciate it!

Everyone has a turtle story!

Turtles take between 30 and 80 years to replace themselves. Turtle populations have declined globally by more than 50%. Each turtle lost is a threat to the survival of populations. One of the largest threats in North America is from death or injury caused by road traffic.

The Land Between region in Ontario (stretching from the Georgian Bay Coast to Ottawa) has more than 1/3 of Ontario's turtles. It is a land of hope! 

Help save turtles for future generations 

Support our Tunnel and Trauma Campaign

970 potential turtle tunnels sites have been identified in The Land Between region that need to be researched and installed. The Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre is the only turtle veteranary hosptial in Ontario and has treated more than 700 turtles in 2017 alone. Your donation helps us implement both prevention and cure to effectively save these special creatures for next generations.
