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!

Help our slow friends come in first!

Turtles are the best cleaners of our water and lakes.
They can live a long time but turtles take up to 60 years to replace themselves in nature!
Today, they are facing extinction because of road mortality, habitat loss and poaching.
Turtles are icons of a living earth and were here even before the dinosaurs! Let's help them survive in today's world too!







Support our T5 Campaign to save Ontario's turtles!

Save Ontario's turtles by raising funds for our T5 Campaign, suppoting all aspects of prevention and cure:
1. Turtles - housing and feeding ambassador turtles that cannot be released into the wild
2. Teaching- education in schools, curriculum development, workshops and summer camps
3. Tracking- field research on turtle populations including presence/absense, biological sampling, habitat condiction, and population trends. 
4. Tunnels - mapping and assessing potential turtle tunnel sites to direct turtles under roads, and installing tunnels at feasible sites.
5. Trauma Care- triage, medical care, and recovery for turtles injured on roads. 



A Land of Hope

The Land Between region in Ontario (stretching from the Georgian Bay Coast to Ottawa) has more than 1/3 of Ontario's turtles. We are focusing efforts here because actions in this final refuge can turn the tides. It is a land of hope!
